Ensayo General: Poesia Reunida 1964-2014

Ensayo general. Poesía reunida 1964-2014, the collected poems of Raúl Bueno, has been recently published by Hipocampo Editores (Lima, 2015) under the auspices of the Office of the Dean of the Faculty at Dartmouth College. It includes five books already published (amongst them Misivas de la Nueva Albión –Letters from New England, 2014) and three previously unpublished collections. It also includes a Prologue by Prof. Beatriz Pastor (“Raúl Bueno… captures with exact lyricism the seasons’ rhythms, the early spring thaw, the shadow of the forests, the meadow’s murmur…”), an afterword by poet Roger Santiváñez (“exile is the subject that commands these poems”), and notes by Rocío Ferreira (“the rootlessness of the migrant subject”) and Antonio Gómez (“profoundly lyrical”). The late NY poet Eva Oppenheim praised the “wonderful imagery and detail” of the 2014 book. The volume is going to be presented and discussed in Havana, Cuba, on July 9, 2015.

Many adventures and happiness, Myrna, and a big THANK YOU for all you have done!
