    Ì`m chilean and, reading this I get the feeling that Parra's work hasn't been showned to reforce the value it does have.
    I suggest a revision of his work and the translation of some of his wooks, or at least one, 'Poemas y Antopoemas', as a whole so the searcher gets a notion of his stetic, value and ruptures wuithin the time of the publications.
    He is our Ezra Pound. (Report) Reply
