César Vallejo - Selected Poems


César Vallejo - Selected Poems

Paperback, 132pp, 8.5x5.5ins

Edited, and translated from Spanish, by Michael Smith & Valentino Gianuzzi. Bilingual Spanish/English edition.

In September 2005, Shearsman Books published the astonishing new translations of Vallejo's Trilce and the Complete Later Poems 1923–1938, edited and translated by Valentino Gianuzzi and Michael Smith. This Selected fills an important gap on the bookshelves by making available a rigorously-edited bilingual selection of Vallejo's work, which draws on the two earlier Shearsman volumes as well as a group of poems from Vallejo's first publication, The Black Heralds, itself a fascinating work which demonstrates the origins of his astonishing art, and what boundaries he had to cross in order to achieve the heights marked by Trilce. Shearsman Books published the complete Black Heralds in 2007, together with some uncollected poems from the pre-Trilce period.
