Pocket Poets Series #0052: Dawn of the Senses: Selected Poems of Alberto Blanco Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An impressive selection, in bilingual format, from the work of one of Mexico’s greatest contemporary writers.

Born in Mexico City in 1951, Alberto Blanco is a dynamic and influential voice in the new poetry of Mexico. A musician, artist, essayist, translator, and storyteller, his poetry explores the connections on frontiers between verbal, visual, and aural experience. He is both an innovator and a classicist, a materialist and a mystic, a visionary and a chronicler of everyday life.

Here his poems converse with their English translations, to create “a singular book . . . not simply a bilingual edition, but one unified voice, a poetry that speaks of a world far beyond languages and borders.” (from the introduction by José Emilio Pacheco).

Synopsis:

Poetry. "The meticulous and loving catalog of moments, animals, plants, beings, suns, and nocturnal revelations that this poetry offers us constitutes - in my way of thinking - a terrible oracle, and a last shout of hope. To say it in a simpler, more direct way, it is a prayer" -Alvaro Mutis.
