Editorial Reviews

Criticas

A well-loved octogenarian poet of Uruguay, Benedetti has published over 80 books, from fiction and short stories to poems and essays. He recently published two poetry anthologies: The Little Stones at My Window (Críticas , 7/1/03) and Inventario Tres (Críticas , 1/1/05), as well as one book of short stories, Buzón de tiempo (“Mailbox of Time”; Críticas , 5/1/04). This newest book of poems, dedicated to his wife of 60 years, now deceased, continues his accessible and musical writing tradition. The narrative is divided into four sections, each with its own theme and style, including “Sonetos con destino” (“Sonnets with Destiny”), 18 whimsical sonnets on everything from tango to class struggle. Benedetti uses rhyme to inject humor and cultural criticism into his poems, as in “Bostezos” (“Yawns”) where he writes: “Si algún orador repite/ tonterías ex profeso / yo bostezo” (“If a speaker repeats/ nonsense ex professo / I yawn”). Perhaps best when writing about love, he suggests that lovers should be kept at the zoo to keep them safe from jealous exes in “Enamorados” (“Lovers”). As the caged lovers age and children visit them, “they laugh and say/ look how the grandparents love each other,” transforming the zoo metaphor into a beautiful witnessing of mature love. The poems are often sentimental and necessarily deal with aging, but they are also moving, as in the final poem, “Epílogo” (“Epilog”), which tells of his wife’s final moments. Recommended for all libraries and bookstores with Spanish–language poetry sections.—Salwa C. Jabado, New York City
