Peacemaker: The Foraker Act (1900) and the Poetry of Evaristo Ribera Chevremont

16 May 2012

Professor Benigno Trigo (Vanderbilt University)

WILKINS HALDANE ROOM, MAIN BUILDING

This paper explores an early book of poems by Evaristo Ribera Chevremont (1896-1976) titled The Slinger Hurled the Stone (El hondero lanzó la piedra). Trigo analyses the effect of the first Constitution of Puerto Rico under the government of the United States on that book in particular, and on Puerto Rican cultural expression in general during the first decades of the twentieth century.

Benigno Trigo is Professor of Spanish at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee (USA). He is the author of Remembering Maternal Bodies (2006), Subjects of Crisis (2000), Noir Anxiety (Co-authored with Kelly Oliver, 2003) and the editor of Foucault and Latin America (2002).
