Publisher: Actar-D
Published Date: 2006
Categories: Art
A re-encounter with Chilean audiences after an absence of twenty-five years. An anthology of works better known to the rest of the world than to his native country. A frank, demanding dialogue with a new public and a new generation of intellectuals. Jaar's work evolves from project to project, as he continually shapes and renews his poetic thinking on such themes such as: the contemporary status of images, the role of artists and intellectuals in society, and an ethical imperative expressed in an aesthetics of resistance.

Gabriela Mistral Books, Gabriela Mistral poetry book Women Authors: Gabriela Mistral
Publisher: White Pine Press
Published Date: 2000
Categories: Literary Collections
Exquisite word portraits of women by one of the past century's greatest women writers. Theserecados--brief, descriptive essays--paint vivid pictures of some of the most extraordinary women of Mistral's generation--and give us insights into Mistral herself. In these pieces, Mistral infuses the traditionally objective essay form with the intimate and subjective, thereby creating an alternate space for women intellectuals in the public sphere. Her subjects range from her own beloved mother to well-known writers such as Victoria Ocampo and Emily Brontë, artists such as Chilean sculptor Laura Rodig and dancer Isadora Duncan, and to topics including feminism, women and politics, and women and education. Gabriela Mistral (1889--1957) is the only woman from Latin America to win the Nobel Prize. A native of Chile, she spent the final years of her life in the United States.

Publisher: Bilingual Review Press (AZ)
Published Date: 2013
Categories: Literary Collections
"In this superb critical edition, Horan has collected, edited, and translated the various prose texts that Gabriela Mistral devoted to St. Francis, a figure of utmost importance to the deeply religious poet and to the spirituality of Latin American literature and art. The inspired translation of Mistral s idiosyncratic Spanish prose into English captures the rhythm and the delicate, lyrical quality of the original, a feat made even more admirable by the addition of an elucidating and comprehensive critical afterword. This is the definitive edition of a work that had yet to be presented in its entirety in such an organized and illuminating way." Santiago Dayd -Tolson, The University of Texas at San Antonio

And then the Ladder's thrown away,
Because Escape-is done-

'Tis varied by the Dream
