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