José Enrique Rodó, Mário y Oswald de Andrade, Jorge Luis Borges, Pablo Neruda, Gabriel García Márquez y Julieta Kirkwood son los autores de que trata este segundo volumen de los Clásicos latinoamericanos de Grínor Rojo, el dedicado al siglo XX. Como en el volumen que se ocupó del XIX, cada capítulo tiene aquí como centro de gravedad una pieza canónica: Ariel, las revistas brasileñas de vanguardia Klaxon y los angeles Revista de Antropofagia, El Sur, Alturas de Macchu Picchu, Cien años de soledad y Ser política en Chile. Los nudos de los angeles sabiduría feminista. Y de nuevo, el propósito del autor ha sido leer otra vez, pero leer de otra manera, a sabiendas de los angeles necesidad imperiosa en que nos encontramos hoy los latinoamericanos de recobrar l. a. actualidad de nuestros clásicos, de convencernos de que ellos existen y que tienen cosas grandes que contarnos, no solo respecto del tiempo en que produjeron su trabajo, sino también respecto de nuestro anémico presente. A despecho de los impetuosos de siempre, los que por las razones que sean no hallan l. a. hora de globalizarnos, haciéndonos partícipes y sobre todo pacientes de una cultura que es tan extensa como de magro calado, así como también a despecho de los que no ven otro modo de responder a ese desafío que arrinconándose en los ghettos de los angeles diferencia, Grínor Rojo piensa que el ejercicio de releer a los clásicos latinoamericanos puede convertirse en una actividad reenergizadora y liberadora. l. a. reflexión grotescamente tosca según los angeles cual sus obras son documentos institucionales, que instalan, defienden y promueven las perspectivas e intereses del poder, carece para él de sentido.
