Poesía y prosa by José Asunción Silva

By José Asunción Silva

José Asunción Silva ocupa un lugar de honor en las letras hispanoamericanas y, al lado de Rubén Darío, puede ser considerado como el precursor de ese gran movimiento literario y cultural que fue el modernismo en América Latina. Su obra, escrita casi toda en los angeles Bogotá provinciana y pacata de finales del siglo XIX, es, entre otras cosas, una rebelión contra todo aquello que obstruía el desarrollo de una personalidad independiente y creativa, lo que explica el carácter contradictorio y pesimista de una buena parte de ella.

La selección y el prólogo que ofrecemos al lector fueron elaborados por el escritor Eduardo Camacho Guizado, autor de varios ensayos sobre Silva. Los textos en prosa y los poemas escogidos recogen lo más representativo del poeta, y el estudio preliminar constituye una valiosa aproximación a uno de los mayores exponentes de los angeles lírica colombiana.
