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.
With Michel Lucotte’s color serigraph “Monnaie de l’Étranger” laid in, as issued, for this limited edition.
