New York: Caronte, 1983. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's illustrated sepia stiff paper wraps.
"Intentará denunciar la enajenación que sufren poetas, filósofos, artistas y críticos frente a una sociedá que los extravía de su propia ontología": first (and apparently only) issue of pioneering Hispanic literary journal Caronte, published in Spanish Harlem by Nuyorican poet and novelist Iván Silén, and featuring poetry and prose in Spanish and English by, among others, Argentine novelist Luisa Valenzuela, Puerto Rican literary scholar Hilda Mundo, and poet, activist, and co-founder of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe Pedro Pietri. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white reproductions of paintings by Susan Hambleton. Although intended to be a tri-annual periodical, we are unable to find evidence of any further issues having been published, with Worldcat recording a single holding only of the present issue, by the New York Public Library. Slight wear to spine-ends, with some toning and faint staining to wraps. Very good. Item #548
