César Vallejo was born in Peru in 1892. His books include The Black Heralds, Trilce, the poshumous Human Poems, and the novel Tugsteno. Active in Marxist politics and the antifascist campaign in Spain, he died in poverty in Paris in 1938. His poems in this issue have never before been translated into English.
