Berkeley. 1978. University Of California Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Worn Dustjacket With Chipping & Numerous Tears. 54. 339 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Bob Cato. 0520036484. keywords:. inventory # 15544. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The Peruvian poet César Vallejo in 1922 published his second important hook of poems, Trilce after Los Heraldos Negros (1919). To anyone who had read Latin American poetry written before Truce, it seemed a strange book indeed, and the literary critics recognized in Vallejo a major talent. When Vallejo got into trouble with Peruvian authorities he emigrated to France and never returned. While in Paris he lived often on the verge of starvation, but managed to make contact with artists and writers, such as Juan Gris, Vicente Huidobro, and Juan Larrea. He maintained himself by writing dispatches for the Lima weekly Mundial, and later he was a weekly columnist for Variedades also published in Lima. Between 1923 and 1938, the year of his death, Vallejo produced 110 poems which have come to be recognized as one of the greatest literary achievements of the twentieth century. Only recently has an accurate text of these posthumous published poems been available. Larrea and other Peruvian scholars have been consulted by the translators of this volume regarding Vallejo’s intentional misspellings, neologisms and Peruvianisms, and they have taken each into consideration, seeking equivalent words and phrases in English. All typeset editions of Vallejo’s posthumously published poetry have, until very recently been riddled with errors. The typescript for this book was based on Vallejo’s worksheets reproduced in facsimile in the 1968 Moncloa edition of his Complete Poetic Works. From the worksheets Clayton Eshleman and José Rubia Barcia have created not only this translation but a faithful Spanish text. Besides a long introduction containing new information on Vallejos years in Europe when all of these poems were written, Eshleman and Barcia have included a section of notes and comments concerning their choices and interpretation of the many difficult words. Also translated is most of the crossed-out material on Vallejos final typescript and, in many instances, the translators have explained how the poet seems to have arrived at a particular final word or line. Clayton Eshleman, a well-known poet and translator, has produced thirty volumes of poetry, the most recent of which is What She Means, published by Black Sparrow Press. He was formerly the founder and editor of Caterpillar, a literary magazine. José Rubia Barcia is Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at UCLA. He has published, among other works, Unamuno: Creator and Creation (UCP, 1967) and Américo Castro and the Meaning of Spanish Civilization (UCP, 1976).

Book Description University Of California Press, 1978. hardcover. 1st Edition. Berkeley. 1978. University Of California Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Worn Dustjacket With Chipping & Numerous Tears. 339 pages. hardcover. César Abraham Vallejo Mendoza (March 16, 1892 – April 15, 1938) was a Peruvian poet, writer, playwright, and journalist. Although he published only three books of poetry during his lifetime, he is considered one of the great poetic innovators of the 20th century in any language. He was always a step ahead of literary currents, and each of his books was distinct from the others, and, in its own sense, revolutionary. Thomas Merton called him 'the greatest universal poet since Dante'. The late British poet, critic and biographer Martin Seymour-Smith, a leading authority on world literature, called Vallejo '. .the greatest twentieth-century poet in any language.' He was a member of the intellectual community called North Group formed in Trujillo city. Clayton Eshleman and José Rubia Barcia's translation of The Complete Posthumous Poetry of César Vallejo won the National Book Award for translation in 1979.
