Description

Part of the New Directions Poetry Pamphlet series, the first English publication by a Latin American legend

Virtually unknown in the English-speaking world, Girondo is one of the pioneers of Latin American literature. This selection offers a glimpse of a precise and playful writer who insisted that a poem “should be constructed like a watch and sold like a sausage.”
