La errática vigilia: homage to Paula de Allende

Querétaro 2023, 

To close the eighth edition of the Hay Festival Querétaro with a flourish, we present of the book La errática vigilia, which brings together the collected poetry of Paula de Allende (Monterrey, 1938 – Queretaro, 1979), published by Letra Capital, the Queretaro Municipality Press. De Allende, recognized for her unique voice and the exquisite value of her poetry, was ahead of her time and explored the depths of the human soul in a unique way. As well as being an outstanding poet, she was an important figure on the cultural scene, since, through her promotional work, de Allende promoted culture in our city and opened the way for young talents. This anthology, meticulously compiled by her son Francisco, pays homage to the intimate and mysterious voice of Paula de Allende. With Carlos Campos and Juan Antonio Isla.
