9780520262294: Poetry in Pieces: CÚsar Vallejo and Lyric Modernity (FlashPoints)

Set against the cultural and political backdrop of interwar Europe and the Americas, Poetry in Pieces is the first major study of the Peruvian poet César Vallejo (1892 1938) to appear in English in more than thirty years. Vallejo lived and wrote in two distinct settings Peru and Paris which were continually crisscrossed by new developments in aesthetics, politics, and practices of everyday life; his poetry and prose therefore need to be read in connection with modernity in all its forms and spaces. Michelle Clayton combines close readings of Vallejo’s writings with cultural, historical, and theoretical analysis, connecting Vallejo and Latin American poetry to the broader panorama of international modernism and the avant-garde, and to writers and artists such as Rainer Maria Rilke, James Joyce, Georges Bataille, and Charlie Chaplin. Poetry in Pieces sheds new light on one of the key figures in twentieth-century Latin American literature, while exploring ways of rethinking the parameters of international lyric modernity.

About the Author:

Michelle Clayton is Associate Professor of Hispanic Studies and Comparative Literature at Brown University.

Review:

"Michelle Clayton reads Vallejo's poems like a virtuoso." -- Benigno Trigo, Hispanic Review

"Poetry in Pieces  [...] foregrounds, at every step, the strategic and corporeal experiences that inflect how one reads and writes. This book is admirable not only for its brilliant, multiple readings of Vallejo, but also for its implicit mapping out of a terrain of scholarship, a mode of reading, a strategically shifting location in academia." -- Sarah Ann Wells, A contracorriente

" a much-needed addition to the English-language literature on this Peruvian poet. [...] A talented comparatist, Clayton situates Vallejo in the wider context of twentieth-century literary history, drawing extremely insightful connections between, alternately, Vallejo's linguistic invention and Joycean aesthetics, his political engagement and the positions held by figures like Vicente Huidobro or André Breton, and his efforts to write a socialist-realist novel [...]  and Soviet debates on the relationship between literature and revolution." -- Rubén Gallo, Modernism/modernity

" an outstanding study that enriches not only our understanding of Vallejo, but also the broader fields of Latin American literature, international avant-garde culture, and modern poetry" -- Leslie Bayers, Revista canadiense de estudios hispánicos
