A reading in celebration of the supreme poetical innovator César Vallejo (1892–1938), whose syntax-breaking search for meaning has been compared to those of James Joyce and Paul Celan. This Peruvian poet's revolutionary works, Trilce (1922) and The Black Heralds (1919), had a major impact on Modernist poetics and Latin American literature.
