Overview


Poetry. Latin American Studies. Translated from the Spanish by William Rowe. INRI responds to the need to find a language for an event that was kept hidden and excluded from official records in Chile: the fact that the bodies of the disappeared were thrown out of helicopters into the mouths of volcanoes and into the sea.

When there are no places from which to speak, "the stones cry out."

The challenge was to confront the contemporary epoch, with its particular forms of violence, including violence done to language.
