In the traditional of great literary manifestos, Norton is proud to present this powerful work by Adrienne Rich. With passion, critical questioning, and humor, Adrienne Rich suggests how poetry has actually been lived in the world, past and present. In this essay, which was the basis for her speech upon accepting the National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, she ranges among themes including poetry's disparagement as "either immoral or unprofitable," the politics of translation, how poetry enters into extreme situations, different poetries as conversations across place and time. In its openness to many voices, Poetry and Commitment offers a perspective on poetry in an ever more divided and violent world. "I hope never to idealize poetry—it has suffered enough from that. Poetry is not a healing lotion, an emotional massage, a kind of linguistic aromatherapy. Neither is it a blueprint, nor an instruction manual, nor a billboard."

Offers the first comprehensive survey of Mexican existentialism to appear in English. This book examines the emergence of existentialism in Mexico in the 1940s and the quest for a genuine Mexican philosophy that followed it. It focuses on the pivotal moments and key figures of the Hyperion group, including Emilio Uranga, Luis Villoro, Leopoldo Zea, and Jorge Portilla, who explored questions of interpretation, marginality, identity, and the role of philosophy. Carlos Alberto Sánchez was the first to introduce and emphasize the philosophical significance of the Hyperion group to readers of English in The Suspension of Seriousness, and in the present volume he examines its legacy and relevancy for the twenty-first century. Sánchez argues that there are lessons to be learned from Hyperion’s project not only for Latino/a life in the United States but also for the lives of those on the fringes of contemporary, postmodern or postcolonial, economic, political, and cultural power.

In Politics and Verbal Play Martha LaFollette Miller traces the evolution of the poetry of Angel Gonzalez from his early existential and social period through later works that draw heavily on verbal and conceptual play for their effect. Born in Oviedo, Spain, in 1925, Gonzalez has been recognized as one of the foremost poets of his generation in that country. From the beginning, his work has combined social criticism (most often expressed through irony) with an intense lyricism (mostly elegiac in tone). Though social and elegiac elements have never completely disappeared from his work, his poetry in the late sixties began to undergo a significant transformation. As he describes this process, his loss of hope for political change in Spain led to his abandonment of faith in the poetic word. Moving away from poetry based on a fusion of everyday experiences and universal history, he entered the world of literary games. Instead of mirroring personal history or events in the world, he turned toward poetic jokes, verbal play, and parody. As the poet himself has noted, he converted his critique of society into a critique of language and his own powers of expression. Miller bases her study of Gonzalez's evolution on what might be termed post-modern critical foundations: the notion that literary works do not spring from the author as rational source, but rather from a complex web of historical, literary, linguistic, and intellectual realities in which the author is enmeshed and the reader/audience/critic also implicated.
