Morada al sur: A Home in the South
Translated by Rose Shapiro
With the masterful translation of Morada al sur, Shapiro unlocks, for English-speaking readers, the haunting world of Aurelio Arturo, one of Columbia’s most inspiring poets. Exiled in the north of the country, Arturo writes longingly of his beloved home in the south. The elegance and lyrical quality of his poetry conjures a nostalgic re-creation— magical and mythic— of southwestern Columbia. A mysterious figure who yet looms large over Columbia’s poetic landscape, Arturo’s single volume is consistently regarded as one of the most influential works in the twentieth century Latin America.
