Imprint[S.l.] : Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. 1961
QuotationYes I have received your Epigrams: they are magnificent. The Revolutionary Poetry of Nicaragua [Poesía revolucionaria] too I have received: there is much in it that is most deeply moving. I am grateful for your corrections of the translations of Alfonso, and I have put them into the text. The poems are to be published in a New Directions anthology but unfortunately I can see that J. Laughlin is going to waste an enormous amount of time getting down to business with it. I may give them to some magazine, and will draw on your very fine article for a biographical introduction.
