The black heralds
Poetry. THE BLACK HERALDS, Cesar Vallejo's first book of poems, appeared in 1919. It clearly has late-Romantic and late-modernista roots, but, as D. Gallagher says in his survey "Modern Latin American Literature, " "what is remarkable about 'Los heraldos negros ' is the sense one gets now and then of a personal voice emerging. In many of the poems, Vallejo's own experiences, his own personality, begin confidently to express themselves, and with them there tentatively burgeons a new language, the beginnings of maybe the most original voice in Latin American poetry."
