Published In: United States, 01 February 2002
A uniquely appealing collection that reflects the variety and richness of South American poetry.
Carlos Drummond de Andrade, a native-born Brazilian, is universally recognized as the finest and most accessible modern Portugese-language poet and, along with Pablo Neruda, a poet of the common man, writing of home, family, friends, and love.
Rafael Alberti--an elegist primarily--came to Argentina (where he wrote many of his poems) in exile from Spain during the Spanish Civil War. The effects of that experience wind through the poet's work in poems about the survival of the spirit in the face of personal and political tragedy.
"Looking for Poetry" also contains the simple and haunting poems of the Quechua Indians.
