The Power and the Glory

In Evergreen Review No. 7, published in the winter of 1959, we presented a selective cross section of recent work by the younger generation of Mexican painters, poets, and prose writers of that time. We were trying to bring America closer to the exciting cultural achievement in Mexico, unlike President Bush, who is trying to close them off with a 700 mile long fence between the two countries. Bush should remember something funny about World War Two: the British built great walls of guns facing the sea to protect India and Singapore, but the Japanese just walked in behind them. Above is one of the poems from that issue.
