Part II contains six succinct essays on the major figures Sor Juana In's de la Cruz, Gabriela Mistral, C sar Vallejo, Pablo Neruda, Carlos Drummond de Andrade, and Octavio Paz. Part III analyses specific and distinctive trends within the poetic canon, including women's, LGBT, Quechua, Afro-Hispanic, Latino/a and New Media poetry.
