INTERNATIONAL PRAISE FOR
THE DELIRIUM OF SIMON BOLIVAR

"Beautifully exploring the theme that 'only those who see the invisible can do the impossible,' this exciting, lucid, and often heartbreaking collection of poems tracks the life and consciousness of the great Liberator Simon Bolivar. There are poems that tell us how he was loved, what freedom means in today's Latin America, how he felt as he contemplated death and exile, and much, much more. Looking at this towering figure from countless separate angles and through countless lenses, we begin to understand the man who sought 'to challenge/ like Don Quixote/ what all believe they see.' A must read."
-Jose Rivera
Academy Award® nominee for Best Adapted Screenplay (The Motorcycle Diaries)

"An important topic, never before so deeply explored in poetry."
-Jorge Ruiz
Bolivian pioneer filmmaker and winner of the Smithsonian's James Smithson Bicentennial Medal
(Come Back, Sebastiana)

"Tina Datsko de Sanchez's book, The Delirium of Simón Bolívar, seems to me an important work. Her desire to make known in the USA an historical figure so extraordinary, courageous and lucid is an admirable goal. It reveals the degree of Tina's spirituality, which moves her to bring back a lost but necessary memory and share with her compatriots the presence of a human being of absolute greatness as was Simón Bolívar. Her verses struck me as very beautiful, with a notable capacity of synthesis, and holders of the undeniable emotion of doing something for all."
-Jorge Sanjines
Cannes Film Festival Winner of the
Great Young Directors Award (That's the Way It Is)

"The Delirium of Simón Bolívar brings to life, through inspired poetry, a life that should be known by all."
-Ligiah Villalobos
Writer/Producer and winner of the Estela Award
(Under the Same Moon)

"Every verse is music, philosophy, pure magic. Different compositions, at times, refer to the history of a true hero, the nostalgia for a "mythic time" where everything seems to have paused forever. The author also refers at times to things that can seem simple, but with the punctuality of the cruel reality of a fierce suffering, as if making it normal and part of daily life. All of that carries the reader to another dimension; her poetry in this sense might be called almost "magic." Poems that travel across time and space, among the infinite dimensions of the universe. The metaphors that are included in the volume are also of an artistic depth without equal. The author is an architect of poetry that is sincere, authentic, and spontaneous. One might say it is poetry inspired by the instinct of the heart."
-Valentina Casagrande
