Valery Larbaud and Ricardo Güiraldes : Commerce waving to Proa
The eminent role played by « Valerio » Larbaud in introducing Hispanic-American letters to France is only equaled by his transatlantic mail, of which journals took an important share.
From Commerce to Proa and inversely, Larbaud’s epistolary relationship with Ricardo Güiraldes is a telling example of« Don Valerio’s » dynamic approach to the new terrain of Hispanic American letters, and a perfect illustration of the important contribution of journals to international literary exchanges.
