The Poems of Evaristo Carriego are marked by their realism opposed to the symbolist currents of Argentine poetry of that time.
Carriego was a poet who did not hesitate to paint with crude realism the poverty, pain and violence of the urban landscape. Carriego’s work turned people, places and even forms of social contact from marginal sectors into poetic subjects.
His only book of verse published during his lifetime, Heretic Masses, appeared in 1908. He acquired some fame with the poems, but could not enjoy it as he died on October 13, 1912 at the age of twenty-nine.
Jorge Luis Borges, who was his great admirer, wrote in 1930 an interesting essay on his life and work entitled Evaristo Carriego. It is not only the biography of a forgotten poet; In reality, the great Argentine writer uses his existence to recreate the Buenos Aires suburb of the beginning of the last century, a rescue of the suburb and tango:

“Carriego was the man who discovered the literary possibilities of the decayed and miserable suburbs of the city: the Palermo of my childhood. His career followed the same evolution of tango: overwhelming, bold and courageous at first, then turned sentimental. In 1912, when he was twenty-nine, he died of tuberculosis, leaving only one published book (The Heretic Masses). I remember that the copy, dedicated to my father, was one of the several Argentine books that we had taken to Geneva and that I read and reread there.»

Jorge Luis Borges
