García publishes critical, annotated edition of book of 18th Century poems

Hugo García, an assistant professor in the Modern and Classical Languages Department at Western Washington University, has published a critical and annotated edition of Lima por dentro y fuera (Lima Inside and Out). This is a lengthy collection of satirical poems that was written by Esteban Terralla y Landa and published first in Peru in 1797.

García prepared this new edition, which includes an ample preliminary study and notes that help the reader to understand cultural, historic and linguistic aspects. The text is a co-edition of the National Major University of San Marcos and the Center for Literary Studies “Antonio Cornejo Polar,” both located in Lima. The official presentation of the book took place on May 5 at the National Major University of San Marcos.
