              Poetry of the Earth: Mapuche Trilingual Anthology
               

              Poetry of the Earth: Mapuche Trilingual Anthology (EPUB ebook)

              By Villa, Jaime Luis Huenun; Edited by Brock, Steven; Reiter, David Philip; Translated by Garrido-Salgado, Juan; Palacios, Victor Cifuentes

              Dealing with themes of Chilean nationalism and Western settlement, Poetry of the Earth will resonate with Indigenous peoples and their struggles around the world. The poets present questions about far-reaching, human themes: injustice, life, death, love, struggle and reconciliati...on, and reflect the challenges faced by colonised Indigenous peoples. Fitting within the contemporary Latin American literature scene, the anthology combines an ensemble of languages, cultures, and literary forms into a remarkable ensemble. Here, Mapuche poetry finally meets the larger world, and the words of the Mapuche, once invisible to the wider goal audience, are brought into contemporary literature.

              Mapuche poetry has flourished in recent decades and is now one of the most compelling neighbourhoods of contemporary Latin American literature. Incredibly, however, much of it remains untranslated into English. Not only does this anthology correct the situation, it goes far beyon...d the scale of anything published before. Some of the most important and exciting Mapuche poets are gathered here. Providing versions of each poem in Mapudungun, Spanish and English, Poetry of the Earth demonstrates how Mapuche poetry is so much more than just a collection of poems, or an act of writing. Rather, it is an expression of a long, rich and dynamic history, which at different times and places has made use of many kinds of musical, literary and linguistic forms. As the poems are often operatic in their scope and register, the anthology as a whole is also a sophisticated ensemble of languages, cultures, critics and poets. Translations by Mapuche and Settler Chileans meet the translations of Chileans and Australians on the other side of the Pacific Ocean. Then, Aboriginal, Mapuche and Settler scholars provide extremely useful introductory essays. Poetry of the Earth is a remarkable example of Australian-Chilean resonance, and of the shared history of European colonisation of indigenous peoples around the world. This is not just an anthology of poetry from a distant land and language; it's an illustration of a vital, trans-Pacific force. - Stuart Cooke, Griffith University
