CARLOS PROSPERO and GILBERTO MEZA live in Guadalajara where, in 1973, they were the central members of a group of young Mexican writers gathered around a program sponsored by El Departamento de Bellas Artes del Gobierno del Estado de Jalisco. Although many of the writers have left Guadalajara for other places, Meza and Prospero, who write for a newspaper, continue to work there. Translations of their poems have appeared previously in The Shore Review (Milwaukee), The Iowa review, and The Bitter Oleander (Syracuse, N.Y.). Prospero won the Juegos Florales poetry prize in 1975 and is publishing his first book, Es Un Mundo Del Rocio, Sin Embargo, through the Universidad de Guadalajara. Meza's "Cuentos Nevados" appeared in Cuadernos de Occidente and a manuscript of his poems won the 1973 Juegos Florales poetry prize at the Universidad de Guadalajara.
