Editorial Reviews

Choice
This extended anthology is a valuable collection of the new Peruvian poets belonging to the generation after Vallejo and Eguren. Most of the translations are done by David Tipton and are the work of an expert and a poet....Statements and comment by Cisneros, Delgado and Bondy give pertinent information on the poets themselves and the artist's position in Peru. Also brief, helpful biographical notes.

A Guerrilla's Word

Because my country is beautiful
like a sword in the air
and bigger now and even
still more beautiful,
I speak out and defend it
with my life.
I don't care what traitors
say
we've blocked the way
with thick tears
of steel.
The sky is ours.
Ours our daily bread.
We've sown and harvested
the wheat and the land,
ours too
and always ours
the sea,
the jungles
and the birds 


—  Javier Heraud 

( translated by Maureen Ahern )
