Description:

Syracuse. 1988. Syracuse University Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 27. 134 pages. hardcover. Front cover - 'This mined-out mountain slope is in the O'eros region of Peru near where the action of TUNGSTEN takes place; the two Indians pictured are of the type Vallejo calls 'soras' in his novel. Photograph by John Cohen. 081560226x. keywords:. inventory # 11210. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Cesar Vallejo is acknowledged as one of the great poets of this century. But although his poetry has been translated many many his prose has been relatively ignored - certainly in the United States. Nineteen eight-eight marks the fiftieth anniversary of Vallejo’s death, and what more meaningful way to commemorate this event than by making available for the first English edition of TUNGSTEN, his only full-fledged novel. Vallejo wrote of things he saw and experienced as an Indian, a cholo. As reflected in the narrative, Vallejo worked in the mines; he did time in jail; he was an active Communist. Vallejo’s novel deals with life in and around a mining camp built by a U.S. corporation in the Peruvian Andes and with the exploitation and debasement of the local Indian tribes, of women, of the earth itself. Writing with force and clarity, Vallejo makes it hard to turn away from the anger and suffering that breathe through these pages. He explains and dramatizes the roots of the hatred, bitterness, and fear often expressed by Third World intellectuals - not so much against the American people, but against the large corporations and the U.S. government. TUNGSTEN, one of the earliest social-realist novels in Latin American literature, was a best seller in Spain and in the Soviet Union. Now Robert Mezey’s careful and sensitive translation brings this classic text to a North American audience. Robert Mezey is Professor of English and Poet-in-Residence at Pomona College. He is the author of many books and has received the Lamont Poetry Award, the Robert Frost Prize, Ingram Merrill, Guggenheim, and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and a poetry award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Kevin J. O’Connor is Assistant Professor of English at Colorado College. Originally publsihed in Spanish as El Tungsteno in 1931 by Editorial Centit, Madrid. Bookseller Inventory # 11210

Book Description Syracuse University Press, 1988. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st Edition. Syracuse. 1988. Syracuse University Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 134 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. Front cover - 'This mined-out mountain slope is in the O'eros region of Peru near where the action of TUNGSTEN takes place; the two Indians pictured are of the type Vallejo calls 'soras' in his novel.
