Arte Para la Gente: Peru's powerful poet

Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? Therefore please enjoy the following reading of "The Black Heralds", a brief but absolutely stirring poem by famed Peruvian wordsmith Cesar Vallejo:

Even though he only published three books of poetry in his lifetime Vallejo is critically recognized as one of Latin America's greatest poets along with the likes of Pablo Neruda and Alfonsina Storni.

Although Neruda is one my favorite poets (due to the several college essary highlighting his work), this Peruvian clearly has a comparative talent for prose. Thanks for the post!
