Cumbres poéticas latinoamericanas: Nicanor Parra y Ernesto Cardenal (2003)

This book is an in-depth study of the various Spanish-American icons from 1950 to the present days. The first chapter shows an emphasis on South American representatives such as Pablo Neruda, Gabriela Mistral, Vicente Huidobro, César Vallejo, and Jorge Luis Borges, amongst others. The second chapter is a study of Chilean representatives such as Ariel Dorfman, Enrique Lihn, Juan Cameron, Raúl Zurita, and in particular, Nicanor Parra’s literary trajectory. The third chapter presents Central America through its Nicaraguan figures: Gioconda Belli, José Antonio Cuadra, Ernesto Mejía Sánchez, and more specifically, Ernesto Cardenal’s illustrious career. In the last chapters, the analysis includes a vision of the contemporary literature in Argentina, Perú, Chile, and Puerto Rico, among others. It also provides a chapter devoted to Latino Studies in the U.S. with emphasis in Chicano and Nuyorican expressions, new age electronic literature with its poetry on-line, and literature written by women.
