Man by Ricardo Pau-Llosa

Man is premised on the fact that most individuals in our culture have, over the last two generations especially, drifted beyond rebellion or rejection of spiritual matters into a purely worldly menu of causes to explain what occurs to them. Nonetheless, the spiritual—in a universal sense although here it is referenced by the Judeo-Christian tradition—retains, strangely, its capacity to condition and inform our sense of the man-character’s life.

What People are Saying About This

Peg Boyers

“Everything in Pau-Llosa’s man-world is rendered sacramental, even mundane chores like hosing the yard; the resolve not to spill food on his shirt becomes a prayer. The poems of this volume are lush with metaphor and the verdant landscape of tropical Miami.”
