This volume is intended as an introduction of contemporary poetry by notable Uruguayan poets to the English-reading world, but also to readers of Spanish unfamiliar with them. Each poet is represented by an ample and varied selection of poems originally published in Spanish, here with English translations on facing pages. The final chapter is devoted to a biographical sketch of each poet and an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources.

A numbers of these poets have had poems translated into other languages and included in national and international anthologies, and have received international recognition for their work, but they are still virtually unknown in English-speaking countries. Although some of Spanish America's most celebrated narrative writers of the past quarter century have garnered public, academic, and critical attention abroad, their poets have not. Part of this is due to a lack of orientation, a need to identify which poets of the hundreds currently writing are noteworthy.

The editor of this anthology addresses this literary omission by identifying seventeen Uruguayans deserving of recognition: Jorge Arbeleche, Nancy Bacelo, Washington Benavides, Mario Benedetti, Amanda Berenguer, Luis Bravo, Selva Casal, Rafael Courtoisie, Marosa Di Giorgio, Enrique Fierro, Alfredo Fressia, Saúl Ibargoyen, Circe Maia, Jorge Meretta, Eduardo Milán, Alvaro Miranda, and Salvador Puig.

About the Author:

Ronald Haladyna became emeritus professor of Spanish in 2009 after twenty-five years in the classroom at Ferris State University.

Review:

This anthology comprises poems in Spanish and English translation by 17 Uruguayan poets (5 of them women) of the 20th century. The most famous poet included is Mario Benedetti, but others, for example, Enrique Fierro, Washington Benavides, Amanda Berenguer, and Circe Maia, will be familiar to scholars. Also included are Jorge Arbeleche, Nancy Bacelo, Luis Bravo, Selva Casal, Rafael Courtoisie, Jorge Meretta, Eduardo Milán, Álvaro Miranda, Marosa di Giorgio, and Salvador Puig. The volume also includes expatriates Alfredo Fressia and Saúl Ibargoyen. Haladyna (Ferris State Univ.) has arranged the poems alphabetically by author and appends biographies and bibliographical references at the end. The bibliographical information and the inclusion of the original Spanish texts make this an important book. Few of these poems have appeared in English before, and the translations are excellent....Summing Up: Recommended. (CHOICE)
