  1. Considered a leading light of the Latin American Boom generation, Cristina Peri Rossi was born in Montevideo, Uruguay She was forced to leave her country at the age of thirty one when her work was banned and her life was threatened by a repressive military dictatorship, and in 1972 she moved to Spain, where she still resides.This collection of poems, written during her journey to Spain and over the first years of her self exile, was so personal that it remained unpublished for almost thirty year [...]


  2. BarnanitI think that in loving youI shall love your geography an ugly manufacturing city your poet Joan Maragall called it the avenue that crosses her diagonallylike an endless riverthe facades of buildings covered by sootunder which palimpsests are discovered ancientRoman inscriptionsI think that in loving youI shall learn a new tonguethat ancient languagewhere autumn is feminine la tardor and the icy windcrosses over the mountains.I think that to love youI will stammer out the namesof your anc [...]


  3. What took me by surprise was how simple these poems express themselves, yet simplicity that capture the enormous complexity of exile Of real life horrors and pain.


  4. Few books of poetry have affected me as deeply as this one Rossi makes exile seem like a universal condition, as if every sense of displacement, of alienation, could be said to be physical, geographic Her descriptions of violence by the US backed, Uruguayan military junta from which she fled are as viscerally horrific as her utterly candid discussions of her own libido are viscerally erotic I ll admit, the early, depressing poems spoke to me than the later, hopeful, quasi romantic ones I guess [...]


  5. These English translation poems published side by side with the original Spanish over a perspective and lifestyle I haven t experienced or considered before that of the exile The poems aren t complicated, but the emotions and issues they raise are.



  6. Si fuera este libro nada mas los seis paginas y media del prologo, mereceria cinco estrellas Valiosa cada palabra de este volumen.



  7. Fascinating book which consciously and curiously identifies exile as a form of migration Like most Peri Rossi work, technically magnificent The intro by Buck really sets up the book as well.



  8. As always, Cristina s words are inspiring, enlightening They arouse indignation and rage and love and an inescapable urge to act Thank you to the fabulous Marilyn Buck for a beautiful translation.
