An Echo of Swelling Voices: A Novella

Adolfo Danilo Lopez, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

Horacio P. is an exiled Nicaraguan American poet living and teaching in Austin, Texas since the 1970s. Despite his enormous reputation and highly supportive wife, he feels incapable to write his last, and best, novel. This novel is about the life of Asdreni, an Albanian poet who was also exiled in Romania during the time before World War II, and his quest to find out who sent him a mysterious box containing the unpublished manuscripts of an unknown poet. One day, Horacio himself also receives a mysterious box containing the unpublished manuscripts of an unknown poet. His novel and his own life get entangled into a dynamic that Horacio, in real life, and Asdreni in the fictional work, are unable to tell apart.^
