Synopsis

This article relates a conversation between Vicente Ruiz Huidobro and his Chilean countryman, Ángel Crughaga Santa María, in which the latter relates Huidobro’s literary activities in France after he founded the magazine Nord-Sud with Pierre Reverdy in 1917. The publication was considered the foundation of Creationism, a pure aesthetic removed from narrative. In the first part of the text Huidobro gives an account of the avant-garde movements that came before: Futurism and Unanimism that, in his opinion, did not manage to dislodge themselves from the remnants of symbolism. The Chilean poet likewise draws a parallel between Simultaneity-ism and his polyphonic poems.

Annotations

In the first manifesto, Actual, the Mexican Stridentists hold up the Creationist movement as one of the international avant-garde-isms whose contributions should be assimilated. In his directory of the avant-garde, Manuel Maples Arce (1898-1981) includes both Vicente Huidobro and Pierre Reverdy among the ones heading the list; Reverdy appears as “Pierie Reverdy” [sic].
