Othon's work has greatly influenced my own poetry. "A Steppe on the River Nazos" is not only one of my favorite poems, but one that cries out for greater recognition. Its very simplicity is its greatest strength, yet any author will tell you that this style of seemingly effortless writing is actually extremely difficult to achieve.

MANUEL JOSE OTHON

 

Othón, Manuel José (1858-1906). Oddly, although he is one of Mexico’s most distinguished poets, there doesn’t seem to be anything available in English on Othón – even on the net.

Othón was born and schooled in San Luis Potosi. Soon after his graduation, he became ill and left the city, never to return.

He settled in the countryside and published Poemas rústicos (“Rustic Poems”) in 1890 and Idilio salvaje (“Idyll of the Wild”) in 1905.

To the deeply religious Othón, nature was a manifestation of the Divine.

In many ways, Othón was unique and it is doubtless because of his estrangement from and his lack of sympathy with the modernistas that he has never gained the reputation that his work so richly deserves.

See A Steppe on the River Nazos in "A SALUTE TO SPANISH POETRY: 100 MASTERPIECES FROM SPAIN AND LATIN AMERICA RENDERED INTO ENGLISH VERSE".
