Gabriela Mistral: Selected Poems

Sinopsis del Libro

Libro Gabriela Mistral: Selected Poems

Gabriela Mistral (1889-1967), Chile's 'other' great poet of the twentieth century, is little known outside the Spanish-speaking world, and unlike Pablo Neruda has not been extensively translated into English. She deserves better, particularly as the first Latin American recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature (1945), and this selection of her poetry is designed to introduce her to an English-speaking public. Born Lucila Godoy Alcayaga in the Elqui valley in the 'little north' of Chile, she became a schoolteacher at the age of fifteen and went on to become an educator of international renown, an architect of educational reform in Mexico, and a cultural administrator at the League of Nations. She began publishing prose and verse pieces in newspapers and reviews at about the same age. Four major collections of her poems were published in her lifetime: Desolacion (Desolation) in 1922, Ternura (Tenderness) in 1924, Tala (Felling) in 1938, and Lagar (Wine Press) in 1954, followed by Poema de Chile published after her death. Poems from each of these five collections are included here. The landscape and people of her native Chile are a constant theme in her work, even though she lived most of her adult life away from Chile, largely as a consul - unpaid for many years - in Europe, Brazil, and the U.S.A., where she died. Her great love of children, who were the main preoccupation of her life and whom she both understood and respected; motherhood, and her lack of it; loss of people she loved; religious faith, tested and at times unorthodox, are other abiding themes. Her language is direct, passionate, rooted in local usage. The whole of her work, in prose as well as in verse, is a reflection of the absolute integrity of her life.

Dominio de la tarde

Libro Dominio de la tarde

La poesía es una forma de conocimiento; una imagen, cierto ritmo, nos revelan la esencia de las cosas de manera mas viva y mas intensa que un complejo sistema filosófico. Conocimiento intuitivo, supra racional, de índole distinta al conocimiento científico, pero no menos cierto; podrán caer en desuso determinadas teorías para explicar el universo sin menoscabo del valor del verdadero poema, el cual trasciende las limitaciones de su época.

Libro de Apolonio

Libro Libro de Apolonio

El Libro de Apolonio constituye una de las obras más bellas de la literatura medieval española. Poema de la escuela erudita del Mester de Clerecia sorprende al lector tanto por su técnica, casi perfecta, como por su subyugante plasticidad narrativa.(De la edición de Pablo Cabañas)

La Araucana III

Libro La Araucana III

La experiencia americana de Ercilla le inspiró su poema épico La Araucana, escrito en octavas reales y dividido en tres partes (1569, 1578 y 1589). Es uno de los libros salvados en el capítulo VI del Quijote y el primer texto poético europeo en el que América es un tema literario. Ercilla relata las cruentas luchas sostenidas en Chile entre araucanos y españoles, y describe el lugar y las costumbres de los indígenas. La narración impresiona por la precisa descripción de paisajes y batallas, y los certeros retratos de los jefes araucanos. Se intercalan digresiones, según un...

El libro de los indolentes

Libro El libro de los indolentes

Loving poetry is a symbol of indolence, a challenge that requires solitude and silence, sacrifice and permanent devotion. All that a human being needs to live can be found in poetry, the artistic genre par excellence. El libro de los indolentes is a journey towards an unknown place where we inhabit, each day, a fortified but unwalled space, a river that gushes truth.
