Mill of the chill of the wind
That weaves the mornings into nights
That spins the mists beyond the grave
Mill of ill-wind and wind in the sills
The landscape fills with your madness

What People are Saying About This
“Huidobro’s great poem is the most radical experiment in the modern era. It is an epic that tells the adventures, not of a hero, but of a poet in the changing skies of language. Throughout the seven cantos we see Altazor subject language to violent or erotic acts: mutilations and divisions, copulations and juxtapositions. The English translation of this poem that bristles with complexities is another epic feat, and its hero is Eliot Weinberger."
