Resumen del Libro
In republishing Excentricas (1893) not only will we recover Bonifacio Byrnes most important volume of poetry, but also one of the most important titles of Cuban modernism, and one which will certainly enrich the canon of Spanish-American modernismo. This is both a critical and carefully commented edition of Excentricas and other selections of Byrnes poetry and prose, which also includes an updated bibliography and a survey of critical approaches to his poetry. The edition also features a rigorous introduction that introduces the author to the reader, places the poet in the context of his time and brings to light his singularity as a modernista poet. Francisco Moran, professor of Spanish-American literature at Southern Methodist University is the editor of this volume. Prof. Moran, who has published extensively on the main figures of modernism, was in charge of the edition of Juana Borrero o la obsesion del obstaculo, also published by Stockcero.
