José María Eguren

Eguren, José María (hōsāˈ mārēˈä ĕgōˈrān) [key], 1882–1942, Peruvian poet. Originally devoted to modernismo, Eguren avoided its excesses and wrote terse, musical, and sometimes obscure poems. His strange images, symbols, and dreamlike visions were wrought into a framework of formal perfection. Simbólicas (1911), La canción de las figuras (1916), and Poesías (1929) are his best-known collections.
