Alberto Blanco

Edited by Juvenal Acosta
Introduction by Jose Emilio Pacheco

"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 at last a shout of hope. To say it in a simpler, more direct way, it is a prayer." - Alvaro Mutis

"Alberto Blanco's deep poetry inhabits both the world and the universe of imagination; these poems shed their own light and fly on their own wings." - Michael McClure
