De Vicente Huidobro
Selection Christopher Joannon
Illustrated by Albert Montt

The avant-garde poet Vicente Huidobro, father of Creationism, revolutionized Spanish-American poetry in the first half of the last century. This selection of his poems, populated with unusual images and visual games, takes us into a world sometimes very different from every day, in which roosters appear singing on the Eiffel Tower and "ships in danger between two stars."
