English / Spanish Edition
"Marta López-Luaces's Architects of the Imaginary brilliantly demonstrates the practice and the truth of "wreading" as articulated by Jed Rasula in his books This Compost: Ecological Imperatives in American Poetry and On Wreading, where "wreading" means the "w" of writing and the act of reading conjoined. Truly, writing and reading are inseparable here. López-Luaces, in a voice both delirious and steady, orchestrates language drawn from Jabès, Duncan, Neruda, Gamoneda, H.D., Plath, Dickinson and Rosalía de Castro, among many others, such that 'Out of a foliage of words/Emily and Rosalía speak/inside me.' In the process, López-Luaces, in a world set on reductions, affirms the powers and the potentialities of the non-self-identical, which are also those of poetry itself. That this is a bilingual edition, the Spanish, and the English equally luminous, further deepens that affirmation and our encounter with wreading."
-Leonard Schwartz, author of IF
"In Marta López-Luaces's beautiful poetry again and again we find nature at the center of her imagination, but nature transformed into a metaphysical reality."
-Peter Gizzi, author of Now It's Dark
