MEDIA REVIEWS
There isn t a more important contemporary writer than Raul Zurita. And through her insistent attentionto diction and syntax, Anna Deenycreates an English poetry as abrupt, heuristic, sweeping, and finally redemptive as the Spanish; to wit, she delivers Zurita s genius. Forrest Gander, author ofEye Against EyeandTorn Awake
"RaulZurita is one of the essential poets of the twenty-first century, and we are fortunate to have these fiercely beautiful translations." Robert Hass, author ofThe Apple Treesat OlemaandWhat Light Can Do"
"His poems are bone, river, spirit. They are weaved in the sky and in the desert. His words give us eyes to see the blue, the white, the endless hues of beige and ocher--the colors of the desert he returns to. . . He refines distance as well as the sea. He is the revolution of language. Lyrical and epic. Mythical and mesmerizing." --Prairie Schooner

"Raul Zurita is one of the essential poets of the twenty-first century, and we are fortunate to have these fiercely beautiful translations." --Robert Hass, author of The Apple Treesat Olema and What Light Can Do
"In her powerful and useful introduction to these poems, Anna Morales reminds us of the specific historical events that generated Zurita's poetry. These need to be known. 'To be disappeared' is to be taken away to another piece of the earth, a particular place, and hidden there. In Chile Pinochet and a population gone blood-mad did this. 'To disappear' is to die into God. Zurita studies this difference. His marvelous poetry, as such, is a work of mystery." --Fanny Howe, author of Come and See and Second Childhood
