What is included with this book?


The Poetry and Poetics of Nestor Perlongheris the first full-length study in English of the highly regarded and influential Argentine poet and anthropologist and his pioneering body of work. Taking on some of the most dynamic and conflictive themes of modern-day Latin America, Perlongher's (194992) poetry explores dictatorship, national identity, exile, issues of gender and marginal sexualities, and modern-day esoteric religious ritualall enmeshed within an anthropological outlook that challenged the very limits of the human being and attacked the most entrenched of contemporary taboos. This vital study analyzes and contextualizes his work while offering important tools for reading and understanding experimental verse and providing an innovative contribution for all those interested in Latin American literary and cultural studies.
