9781933254708: The History of Violets

Poetry. Latino/Latino Studies. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Spanish by Jeannine Marie Pita. THE HISTORY OF VIOLETS is a collection of poems by Marosa di Giorgio, one of the most prominent Uruguayan poets of the twentieth century. Her unusual style, which attempts to recapture the magic of childhood while creating a new world populated by gods, angels, monsters, and the sublime presence of nature, has attracted much critical attention in Latin America. While some critics have categorized her as a surrealist, she herself denied membership in any literary movement or school. Although she was relatively unknown outside the Southern Cone, she is now becoming more and more widely read throughout Latin America and Europe.
