Abstract

The discovery in the early 1990s by Juan Fló of the photocopies of a bundle of poems written in the hand of "César Vallejo" in the private archives of Ángel Rama in Montevideo allows us to make some formulations about the vexed problem of the chronology of the "Poemas humanos." While Georgette de Vallejo based her understanding of her deceased husband's work around a dividing-line which separated the non-political from the political, Larrea believed he saw a clear demarcation between those poems which focused on Spain and those which did not. A new chronology for Vallejo's posthumous poetry is proposed which combines the more reliable elements from both Georgette's and Larrea's versions.
