Lisímaco Chavarría Palma’s (1873-1913) literature establishes dense processes of cultural hybridization, which allows his writing to assume various routes: from the local to the international, from intimate spaces to profound objectifications, from country landscapes to chromatic symbolisms, from the pristine joys to the tragedy of their own death. In the scope of their own poetry, it means the incorporation of romanticism and modernism’s conceited languages, yet also the popular orality and the vernacular costumes. The critic review of their work on this Tome I includes a documental biography of the writer and displays their poems: Orquídeas (1905), Desde los Andes (1907), Añoranza líricas (1908), Manojo de guarias (1913) and Palabras de la Momia (1919). On Tome II their dispersed poems are gathered, which makes up the biggest part of their poetic productions, and their essays. This publication is a homage that the University of Costa Rica does in memory of one of the founders of Costa Rican poetry in the 100th year since their death.
