Item description for Breve Antologia Poesia Latinoamer Vang 1920-30 by Jorge Luis Borges, Huidobro, Girondo, Drummond de Andrade, Guillen, Villaurrutia & etc....
Los movimientos de vanguardia, sugeridos en Europa a comienzos del siglo como programa estetico de oposicion a las normas hasta entonces vigentes, significaron una nueva manera de pensar y producir arte. Casi simultaneamente, los artistas americanos fundan en disientas regiones una vanguardia con signos propios: las raices negras, en la poesia de Guillen, el sustrato indigena, en la obra de Vallejo, la mitologia de los compadritos, en los primeros textos de Borges. Esta antologia reune algunas de las expresiones vanguardistas mas significativas de Latinoamerica, organizadas geografica y cronolog icamente, y por movimientos, para facilitar el abordaje de un lector no especializado. Se intercalan manifiestos y poemas, ya que ambos generos constituyen partes indisolubles de una misma actitud artistica: pronunciamiento teorico ante la sociedad y puesta en practica literaria. En este doble gesto contestatario, el lector joven encontrara rasgos que le son afines.
