Short Description

Latin America has developed, from the 19th century, an interest in reading and translating texts from other languages into our own tone and nuance of Spanish. Borges and Victoria Ocampo were most eminent translators. Mariátegui “translated” Surrealism and Marxism into Peruvian politics and culture. Translation is a founding gesture of independence.
