Description:

Boston. 1962. Beacon Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket With Some Stain Marks On The Front Cover. 226 pages. hardcover. keywords: Literature Translated Latin America Anthology. inventory # 13843. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Darwin J. Flakoll and Claribel Alegria New voices are heard today all over Latin America. From Tierra del Fuego to the Rio Grande, new talents reflect a ferment of growth and activity in the arts, as in every aspect of public life. This book introduces over thirty of the best modern writers from the Spanish-speaking countries of the Americas, including Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Argentina; many of them appear in English for the first time. Their short stories and poems capture the distinctive flavor of the Hispanic-American temperament, heritage and environment, and convey a spirit of eager adventure and self-awareness paced with Latin America’s growing political prominence. The variations in themes from the regional writings to the psychological story - not only bespeak Hispanic America’s unique style and tempo, but also touch upon the shared experiences of all men. The result of a careful process of selection, this anthology represents the choice fruits of the fresh literary talents from ‘south of the border.’ The introduction affords the reader a frame of reference by illustrating the contrasts in standards of value and ways of life in the two Americas; in addition, the particular problems and preoccupations of the new generation of Spanish-American writers are discussed. With poems in both English and Spanish, this volume offers the student a valuable source book on modern Hispanic America. For those who delight in discovering vigorous new fiction and poetry, here is a vital art making its bid for a place in world literature. And all who read this book will gain fresh insight into the mind and emotions, the problems and aspirations of our Latin American neighbors. Darwin J. Flakoll and Claribel Alegria (Mrs. Flakoll) are both steeped in Spanish-American writing. Mr. Flakoll, a former newspaperman, editor and free-lance writer, is now serving as Second Secretary in the U.S. Embassy at Buenos Aires, Argentina; his previous assignments have taken him to many Spanish-American countries. Miss Alegria, a Salvadorean writer, has published five books of poetry and one of children’s stories. While living in Mexico, the Flakolls came to know many young writers and conceived the idea of compiling an anthology of modern Hispanic American literature for a North American audience. Their project was accepted by The Catherwood Foun- dation which extended them a grant to undertake the work while they were residing in Santiago, Chile. The Flakolls polled numerous leading literary critics, editors, writers and teachers of Latin-American literature for their nominations of the best new writers. From several thousand manuscripts and books of poetry and short stories, they culled the stories and poems that appear in New Voices of Hispanic America. .
