Poèmes Choisis. [inscribed to his bibliographer]
Inscribed and signed by Carrera Andrade to his bibliographer, Dorothy E. Harth “con mi amistad.” This lauded Ecuadoran imagist poet is “universally recognized as one of the twentieth century’s most important Latin American poets.” (Jorge Carrera Andrade - Ecuadorian Literature online) In France and Spain, Carrera Andrade met other Latin American expatriates, including Pablo Neruda, Gabriela Mistral, and César Vallejo. His poems were anthologized and/or translated by Muna Lee, William Carlos Williams, Thomas Merton and others. Lee’s translation of his work Secret County (1946) significantly raised his stature in the United States.
