Presencia de Schiller en la poesía mexicana
To speak of the influence of German poetry in Mexican Literature is a paradoxical question. On one hand, some critics affirm that Goethe and Schiller had a decisive influence over the Mexican romantic authors, while others as Enrique Anderson Imbert (History of Hispano-American Literature), only underline the indirect influence over them. In this essay, an analysis is made regarding the possible influence of Friedrich von Schiller and its aesthetics ideas as a poet and playwright, in Mexican poetry. This essay further studies Manuel M. Flores and Manuel José Othón, both recognized poets which work shows an appreciation of Schiller.
