Misreading Marechera

See this post. I still say the Marechera/Vallejo parallels are great.

  1. I must read Vallejo! Please give me a place to start that overlaps with the Marechera stuff — and preferably en englais.

    Please also read THE BLACK INSIDER.

    Black Insider, OK it is on my list. Vallejo: the complete poetry translated by Clayton Eshleman.

  3. And do read the house of hunger. It is less intellectual, more visceral, but somehow more poetic than his other works.

    I will. It goes on my list. 🙂

  5. I ordered the Vallejo book today.

    Wow! Note: that’s the poetry, he also has essays, theatre, short stories, and a novel. The poetry is the most lauded of his things and the other work is often seen as his attempt to write less self indulgent things. I am not sure about this division, however.

  7. I think we can say about Marechera something similar: The poetry is considered the most accessible of his works. The other stuff is considered variously as self indulgent or as incomprehensible to varying degrees
