Reviews

“Placing these three poets who wrote in Mexico side by side, [the author] elicits a fresh image of each one of them.” – Prof. Marcos Piason Natali, Universidade de Sao Paulo

“. . . conveys to us with new depth the international language of surrealism on the one hand, and on the other, the originality and richness of Mexican poetry at the time.” - Prof. Anke Birkenmaier, Columbia University

“[The author’s] study of the reception of surrealism in Mexican poetry (and, in the role of Cernuda, of the role of Spanish exiles in this process) is both clear and insightful, particularly the analysis of intertextual relations between the three poets. She has a keen eye for the nuances of poetic language and is able to write in a graceful and articulate manner.” - Prof. Mario Santana, University of Chicago
