Any Day That Ends Here
Any Day That Ends Here, Poems After Vallejo, a chapbook by Christopher Buckley.
César Vallejo was born in northern Peru in 1892, and in 1923, left Peru to live in Paris—never to return to Peru having been unjustly imprisoned as an “intellectual instigator” in a feud in his home town of Santiago de Chuco. In Peru he had published his first books of poetry, Los heraldos negros and later Trilce. He lived in Paris and Spain until his death in 1938 in Paris, of a fever. During the years in Europe he had difficulty finding work and lived for the most part in dire poverty. He published plays, a novel, worked as a journalist, and wrote many poems which were collected and published after his death as Poemas Humanos. Thomas Merton said Vallejo was “the greatest universal poet since Dante.” Vallejo has been called the greatest twentieth-century poet in any language.
