Eguren, José María

Eguren, José María (hōsāˈ mārēˈä ĕgo͞oˈrān), 1882–1942, Peruvian poet. Originally devoted to modernismo, Eguren avoided its excesses and wrote terse, musical, and sometimes obscure poems. His strange images, symbols, and dreamlike visions were wrought into a framework of formal perfection. Simbólicas (1911), La canción de las figuras (1916), and Poesías (1929) are his best-known collections.
