i have no idea why Parra was once now not in this web site. i'm back correcting such an oversight. i don't understand how there will be quite a bit from Bolano (thank you uploaders, by means of the way), after which not anything by way of Parra....very very unhappy situation. tragic.

This is excellent.

dual-language translation

from the intro:
When Parra’s strains appear disconnected, the reason is, they arc hooked up
in a supralogical method within which we're not conversant in seeing issues.
When the conventions o f cause-and-result appear to be outraged, they are.
The poetry has moved and improved because the mind's eye at the back of it has
since the book of Poems and Antipoems. people who find themselves frequent
with Parra's paintings will locate the humor extra sharply honed and darker,
the anger in the direction of the outside and infrequently breaking via, the
language tighter, the compassion deeper and the statements extra
political—or besides extra social.
