Reviews

It is difficult to find an analogue for the sustained passion and gentleness communicated in this absolutely stunning apotheosis of the poetry of sexual love.
One of the greatest major poets of the twentieth century.
It is hard not to be swept away by the urgency of his language, and that's especially so when he seems swept away.
The greatest poet of the twentieth century--in any language.--Gabriel García Márquez
