Viggo Mortensen's Argentine Poetry Anthology

You know him, right? he recently presented an Argentine poetry anthology put out by Perceval Press, the small publishing firm he founded.

Mortensen, who spent his childhood in Argentina, is a big fan of local, soccer club San Lorenzo, and wore a team jersey to the presentation of “Nueva Poesia Argentina” (New Argentine Poetry) a compilation of work from a variety of Argentinean writers.

The anthology, presented at the Spanish Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, includes poems by Washington Cucurto, Mario Arteca, Francisco Garamona, Maria Medrano, Gabriela Sacone, Ana Wajszczuck among other young Argentine poets.

“I hope this book is a success so we can publish another title that includes other poets from the ‘‘90s Generation,’” Mortensen said.

Excellent suggestion!! I know Mario is a poet very solid, with a capacity to amplify speech so incredible. They can send my regards? A kiss, Katia.
