The Communist Party of Chile (PCCh) was outlawed in 1973, following the deposition of the Allende government in the coup d’etat by Augusto Pinochet. This clandestine poetry serial was published by the youth wing of the party: poems are signed with pseudonyms unless they are by recognized poets, i.e. Pablo Neruda (a PCCh member before his controversial death in 1973). The third issue with more ideological text (quotes from Hegel, Stendahl, and Deznos [sic], etc.).
Pagination and folding are irregular. The distinctive wrappers with artifacts of their handmade production (i.e. ink smears). Cover image of Victor Jara’s guitar?
