9780893041854: Difficult Beauty: Selected Poems (1987-2006)

Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Edited by Yvette Neiser Moreno. "Reading DIFFICULT BEAUTY, one savors the shadows of [Ambroggio's] words as well as the heat of their emotion. One reads these poems for their gliding notes. It is as though the poet, as pilot, knows that the ship of his verse moves through a realm that is dazzling, fragile, and formidable. Ambroggio beckons us to take flight with him, to experience the world as he sees it with joy, awe, and striking reverence"--Oscar Hijuelos.
