This is the first book to answer that question, presenting the new movements in Latin American poetry since Eight poets are selected, with substantial excerpts from their work and parallel translations in English: the test for inclusion is whether their writing expands the possibilities of poetry. Modern Latin American poetry is difficult to summarize because of its large volume and variety, its constant, rapid evolution, and national differences. Many of the poets emphasize surrealistic imagery, free association, and the use of bold metaphors drawn from the subconscious. MOMA’s Latin American collection was formed in the ’s and was garnering renewed interest among the museum’s staff, including William S. Liberman, Bernice Rose, Riva Castleman, and the International Council director Waldo Rasmussen. In the late s I curated several exhibitions on modern and contemporary Latin American art.
