In 1916 Latin American literature began to be studied and written about, and Archer Huntington’s Hispanic Society of America financed de la Selva’s first translations – of eleven of his countryman Rubén Darío’s poems. Following Darío’s death in February 1916, another of his most obvious successors, the Spaniard Juan Ramón Jiménez, visited New York to get married and wrote a startlingly original poem about his experience of the city. Meanwhile, de la Selva continued his courtly pursuit of Edna Millay;continued to welcome new Hispanic writers to the city; and compiled his first book of poems, the manuscript of which has lain unexamined in a university library archive for nearly a century. The US occupation of the Dominican Republic galvanised Hispanic Opposition against Woodrow Wilson’s Pan-American policy.
