Peruvian writer and editor, active in
the literary and artistic avant-garde in Peru and Mexico. Letters, manuscripts, drawings,
clippings, and ephemera document the work of Westphalen and the surrealist Peruvian poet
César Moro (1903-1956). Many files relate to Las Moradas (1947-1949) and
Amaru (1967-1971), journals published by Westphalen.
Emilio Adolfo Westphalen was a Peruvian writer and editor who, with César Moro, was a
central figure in the development of avant-garde art and literature in Peru and Mexico. He
began the journal Las Moradas in 1947, publishing poets and
writers, artists, and articles on politics, philosophy and anthropology. He published the
work of Spanish writers in exile, as well as Americans, and Europeans.
