Poemas humanos = Human Poems by Csar Vallejo( Book )

8 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and Spanish and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

César Vallejo es una de las voces poéticas más singulares de Latinoamérica. Desde sus inicios modernistas, abordará un tono intimista de fuerte carga social y con una honda preocupación por el desvalimiento y el sufrimiento de sus semejantes, y principalmente por los pueblos oprimidos, como el que conformaban los indígenas de su país. Su lenguaje va abriéndose a la experimentación, con diversos registros y con la peculiaridad de plasmar poéticamente una suerte de proceso anímico hermético, a la vez que cargado de reclamo de las libertades del individuo. En Vallejo es abundante, además, el uso

Notebook of a return to the native land by Aim Csaire( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aime Cesaire is most well known as the co-creator (with Leopold Senghor) of the concept of negritude. His long poem Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, written at the end of World War II, is a masterpiece of immense cultural significance and beauty and became an anthem of Blacks around the world. Clayton Eshleman and Annette Smith achieve a laudable adaptation of Cesaire's work to English by clarifying double meanings, stretching syntax, and finding equivalent English puns, all while remaining remarkably true to the French text. Andre Breton's introduction, "A Great Black Poet," situates the text and provides a moving tribute to Cesaire."--Jacket

Juniper fuse : upper paleolithic imagination & the construction of the underworld by Clayton Eshleman( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No one knows the caves and the archaic regions of the soul in our time as does Clayton Eshleman. He is a guide among the animal images of the primordial psyche. His work takes us into the source of imagination, the dark origins of the human mind. --James Hillman
Solar throat slashed : the unexpurgated 1948 edition by Aim Csaire( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soleil cou coupé (Solar Throat Slashed) is Aimé Césaire's most explosive collection of poetry. Animistically dense, charged with eroticism and blasphemy, and imbued with an African and Vodun spirituality, this book takes the French surrealist adventure to new heights and depths. A Césaire poem is an intersection at which metaphoric traceries create historically aware nexuses of thought and experience, jagged solidarity, apocalyptic surgery, and solar dynamite. The original 1948 French edition of Soleil cou coupé has a dense magico-religious frame of reference. In the late 1950s, Césaire was increasingly politically focused and seeking a wider audience, when he, in effect, gelded the 1948 text--eliminating 31 of the 72 poems, and editing another 29. Until now, only the revised 1961 edition, called Cadastre, has been translated. The revised text lacks the radical originality of Soleil cou coupé. This Wesleyan edition presents all the original poems en face with the new English translations.--From publisher description

The original 1939 notebook of A return to the native land : bilingual edition by Aim Csaire( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimé Césaire's masterpiece, Notebook of a Return to the Native Land, is a work of immense cultural significance and beauty. This long poem was the beginning of Césaire's quest for négritude, and it became an anthem of blacks around the world. Commentary on Césaire's work has often focused on its Cold War and inticolonialist rhetoric - material that Césaire only added in 1956. The original 1939 version of the poem, here in French and in its first English translation, reveals a work that is both spiritual and cultural in structure, tone, and thrust. This Wesleyan edition includes the original illustrations by Wilfredo Lam, and an introduction, notes, and chronology by A. James Arnold. --from inside jacket
