Authors in search of a reader: César Vallejo

If Pablo Neruda is the best-known Latin American poet, his poetry is often contrasted with that of César Vallejo, a Peruvian writer born in 1892 in a mountain village in Peru, who died in poverty in 1932 in Paris. Along with Huidobro, Vallejo is probably the greatest innovator of Latin American poetry of the twentieth century, although he has been inexplicably slow to be translated (perhaps because of the enormous difficulty involved) and is still little known to English reader. Scholars Stephen Hart and Valentino Gianuzzi analyze his work moderated by the critic Juan Toledo.
