A ten-stanza poem of five lines each by the highly regarded Mexican poet Esther Tapia de Castellanos (1842-1897) Fraker description: Rare broadside poem by a Mexican poet highly regarded by her contemporaries. "Many other Mexicans deserve a place in the roll of poets, especially Ester Tapia de Castellanos, a poetess far superior to more pretentious and better known versifiers. Her "Flore Sylvestres" appeared in 1871." -- Bancroft, Hubert Howe, Chronicles of the Builders of the Commonwealth, 1892, an opinion confirmed by the Dictionary of Mexican Literature: "She was esteemed for her facile versification and for a marked interest in maternal themes, which carried her poetry beyond the immediate context."
