Bilingual edition with Spanish on the left side and English on the right. In Four Parts: In These Circumstances, Just Look At Things, Postcards, and Animals Know. This collection of poems won the National Poetry Price fo Jose Pacheco when he published it in his native country of Mexico. The basic theme of this book is Time as Poetry. The first section, In These Circumstances, places un in the historical context of time as it afflicts one's sense of self. the three subsequent sections continue Pacheco's meditation on time, poetry, and identity; Pacheco contrasts man with creatures whose timelessness is their ignorance of time. This is a major condtdribution to modern poetry and t the literature of Latin America. Reid, whose masterful translations of the verse of Jorge Louis Borges are well known to orth American readers, is an ideal choice to bering these poems into English for the first time.
