As the translator writes in his introduction: "These are not aphorisms in the classical sense of philosophic gemstones cut and polished to epigrammatic perfection. They are more like thought-in-progress from the notebooks of a radical modernist poet trying to regain his bearings after a consciousness-shaking encounter with Soviet socialism." In these short, pithy, subjective statements, the great Peruvian poet, author of Trilce and Los heraldos negros explores his own thinking and poetics at an extremely important moment in his career. "The dynamic tension between his own subjective, visionary poetics and a desire for solidarity with the masses energizes and haunts these writings."
Stephen Kessler is a poet, translator, essayist and editor whose previous translations include Save Twilight, selected poems of Julio Cortázar, Destruction of Love by Vicente Aleixandre, and a substantial contribution to the Selected Poems of Jorge Luis Borges.
