Architecture of Dispersed Life — Selected Poems, by Pablo de Rokha, translated by Urayoán Noel


Product Details

Pablo de Rokha was one of the great Chilean modernists, but he is arguably known more for his feud with Pablo Neruda and Vicente Huidobro than for his vast and remarkable poetry. De Rokha is relatively unknown outside Chile, and this volume redresses that by offering an introduction to this astonishing body of work, the first comprehensive selection in English. Daniel Borzutkzy calls this book "an event, a monumental work of translation and poetry that will force us to rethink our understanding of global modernism and the hemispheric avant-garde."
