Editorial Reviews

Jack Schmitt
Antonio Cisneros, the most distinguished poet now writing in Peru, is today one of the major poets of all Spanish America. The 76 poems collected in this generous bilingual edition represent the best of Cisneros' work published in six volumes in the last 20 years....Cisneros' book, imbued with a remarkable sense of history, is an irreverent and revisionist interpretation of Peru's past. His early poems, characterized by their epigrammatic brevity, are lean and taut, precise in language and ironic in tone. By 1968 he had become a master of the long verse line, which he uses to this day.
