Publisher Comments:

A major new bilingual edition of the Peruvian poet's work

Cesar Vallejo is one of the best-known Latin American poets of the twentieth century. Challenging, intense, and difficult to translate, Vallejo's work has often been overshadowed by his fervent endorsement of communism. Noted scholar Ilan Stavans tackles the avant- garde poet's politics head-on in an enlightening new introduction that places Vallejo in his proper literary context, while Margaret Sayers Peden's new translation does full justice to Vallejo's complex literary style. Including Spanish and English versions of more than eighty poems that span the arc of his career, this volume is certain to become the leading collection of Vallejo's work for years to come.

About the Author

Cesar Vallejo (1892-1938) published his first book of poems, Los Heraldos Negros, in 1919. He spent most of his life in Europe and died in dire poverty in Paris.

Margaret Sayers Peden is a recipient of the Gregory Kolovakos Award for Translation from the PEN Foundation and a translator of more than thirty books by authors including Isabel Allende, Pablo Neruda, and Octavio Paz.

Ilan Stavans is a professor at Amherst College and the author of several books, including On Borrowed Words.
