Carrera Andrade y la Crítica. [with annotations by Andrade’s bibliographer]
Collected criticism of this lauded Ecuadoran imagist poet “universally recognized as one of the twentieth century’s most important Latin American poets.” (Jorge Carrera Andrade - Ecuadorian Literature online) With a modest number of pencil annotations throughout in the hand of Andrade’s bibliographer, Dorothy E. Harth.
Carrera Andrade “composed brief, imagistic poems noted for a sympathetic understanding of the human condition. He also translated the works of other writers into Spanish and adapted Japanese haiku into Spanish in a form called micrograma.” (Stony Brook University Libraries)
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.
