Gonzalo Rojas, poemas ilustrados

De Gonzalo Rojas 
A selection of Christopher Joannon
Illustrated by Carmen Cardemil

When Gonzalo Rojas was asked about the meaning of his poetry - read today with the greatest interest in all of Latin America - he explained that his task consisted of making the words, the verses, the poems “buzz”. This buzz is not comparable to the forms he used –variable metrics scattered around the page, free verse– or to his most recurrent themes –love, death, childhood–; This buzz is due to the vibration of the unnameable through the named, for example when he writes "eternity is the same".
