The exhibition is organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the publication of “the Black heralds”, a collection of poems by césar Vallejo, perhaps the most significant Peruvian poet of the twentieth century and the most recognized at the international level.

20 November 2018 at 19: 00 in the marble hall of the Library for foreign literature the Embassy of Peru in collaboration with the Russian state library for foreign literature named after M. I. Rudomino opened the book-illustrative exhibition dedicated to contemporary Peruvian poetry. The exhibition presents photographs, verses and passages from the writings of Cesar Vallejo, Jose Santos Chocano, Javier Araud, Blanca Varela, Nicomedes Santa Cruz, Adan Martin and Gonzalo Rosa.

This exhibition is organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the publication of “the Black heralds”, a collection of poems by césar Vallejo, perhaps the most significant Peruvian poet of the twentieth century and the most recognized at the international level. His poetry can be attributed to the post modernism of the early XX century, but at the same time it has its own unique style, marked feature of the speech as well as extreme sensitivity to individual and collective pain.

View as a surrealist, césar Vallejo often used in poetic language, tragic shades to describe human suffering. In its entirety it is this identity reflected in “the Black heralds”, the workbook in which you can say that it is a departure from modernism. Part of the work of césar Vallejo has been translated into Russian language, and among the most famous is “the Black heralds. Trilce. Human poetry.”

Entrance to the exhibition is via the right wing of the Library.

Hours of operation: Monday — Friday 11.00-18.00, Saturday, Sunday — weekend.

Where: Library of foreign literature named after M. I. Rudomino Moscow, Nikoloyamskaya str., 1
