About this Item: Copper Canyon Press, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Bilingual. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. Antonio Porchia (1886-1968) wrote one book, a slender collection of poetic aphorisms that became a classic in the Spanish-speaking world. With affinities to Taoist and Buddhist epigrams, Voices bears witness to the awe of human existence. Revised and updated with a new introduction by translator W.S. Merwin, this bilingual volume brings back into print one of Latin America s great literary treasures. He who tells the truth says almost nothing. * I know what I have given you. I do not know what you have received. * Only a few arrive at nothing, because the way is long. * Out of a hundred years a few minutes were made that stayed with me, not a hundred years. * When I come upon some idea that is not of this world, I feel as though this world had grown wider. * This world understands nothing but words, and you have come into it with almost none. * We become aware of the void as we fill it. Antonio Porchia (1886-1968) was born in Italy. After his father died, he emigrated to Argentina with his mother and seven siblings, and as the eldest child, started working at the age of 14. He was self-taught, and his only book, Voices, caught the attention of a noted French critic who assumed him to be a scholar of Kafka and Buddhism, rather than the humble man who loved to tend his garden. Today, Porchia s aphorisms are published in more than a dozen Spanish-language editions as well as in German, French and Italian. W.S. Merwin s awards include the Pulitzer Prize, the Tanning Prize, the Bollingen Award, and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the NEA. He is the author of dozens of books of poetry and translations. He lives in Hawaii. Seller Inventory # AAS9781556591891

About this Item: Ausable Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 120 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.4in. x 0.3in.Poetry. James Richardsons VECTORS is a book of subversive wonders. Stunningly precise, these brilliant aphorisms and ten-second essays show a mind assessing, reassessing, discovering, and interrogating assumptions in ways that feel diamond-sharp, at once good-natured, quietly sly at times, and always, always, very shrewd. It can never be satisfied, the mind, never, wrote Wallace Stevens. VECTORS is a remarkable testament to such questing, vivid minding, as these aphorisms alight on everything from the nature of perception, to God, success, fear, shame, self-consciousness, love and friendship. There is no virgin past. The mind is like one of those floating islands of vegetation whose roots grasp not the earth but each other, he writes. And: As hard as other people are to talk to, Im glad I dont have to sit next to myself. And: Let me have my dreams, but not what I dream of. Such incisive expressions remind us why Pascal believed so passionately that aphorisms have a particularly uncanny way of engraving themselves so deeply in our memory. VECTORS enters the tradition carried forth by Pascal, Blake, Stevens, Antonio Porchia, and even Emily Dickinson, whose epigrammatic statements arise so vividly from her poems. Page after page there is the exciting sense of something hidden and true coming to light, bringing with it a sense of delighted recognition and discovery for the reader, and articulated in a way that has never quite been done before. I can think of no deeper pleasure a work can bring. From the time Hippocrates coined the term aphorism and published his first one, Life is short, Art long, this is an art form that has periodically renewed itself with astonishing results. Vectors can now be added to the short list of such works that will truly last--Laurie Sheck. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

About this Item: Pre-Textos. Condition: New. VOCES ABANDONADAS Antonio Porchia A veces el creador, de acuerdo con lo que decía Valéry, abandona su palabra, pues reconoce la imposibilidad esencial de terminarla. ¿O es acaso la palabra que exige ser abandonada por su creador? Las voces abandonadas de Antonio Porchia han sufrido un doble -tal vez triple- abandono. El poeta las ha ido dejando por el camino, esperando quizá que el silencio y la soledad completaran su gestación. No se trata en realidad de un abandono definitivo. Con los años, algunas emergieron de ese silencio, reconstruyendo su propia voz que había sido diferida. Son aquellas que, con variantes, con modificaciones, después de su publicación en la primera edición de 1943, son nuevamente incluidas por Porchia en algunas de las ediciones posteriores. Estas voces que fueron víctimas de la hipersensible autocrítica y hasta la extrema humildad de su creador, han quedado en la trastienda de las posibilidades para ser descubiertas periódicamente por algún lector. *** Nota: EL COSTE DE ENVÍO A CANARIAS ES 11.49 EUROS.

About this Item: Ausable Press. Hardcover. Condition: New. 109 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.7in. x 0.5in.Poetry. James Richardsons VECTORS is a book of subversive wonders. Stunningly precise, these brilliant aphorisms and ten-second essays show a mind assessing, reassessing, discovering, and interrogating assumptions in ways that feel diamond-sharp, at once good-natured, quietly sly at times, and always, always, very shrewd. It can never be satisfied, the mind, never, wrote Wallace Stevens. VECTORS is a remarkable testament to such questing, vivid minding, as these aphorisms alight on everything from the nature of perception, to God, success, fear, shame, self-consciousness, love and friendship. There is no virgin past. The mind is like one of those floating islands of vegetation whose roots grasp not the earth but each other, he writes. And: As hard as other people are to talk to, Im glad I dont have to sit next to myself. And: Let me have my dreams, but not what I dream of. Such incisive expressions remind us why Pascal believed so passionately that aphorisms have a particularly uncanny way of engraving themselves so deeply in our memory. VECTORS enters the tradition carried forth by Pascal, Blake, Stevens, Antonio Porchia, and even Emily Dickinson, whose epigrammatic statements arise so vividly from her poems. Page after page there is the exciting sense of something hidden and true coming to light, bringing with it a sense of delighted recognition and discovery for the reader, and articulated in a way that has never quite been done before. I can think of no deeper pleasure a work can bring. From the time Hippocrates coined the term aphorism and published his first one, Life is short, Art long, this is an art form that has periodically renewed itself with astonishing results. Vectors can now be added to the short list of such works that will truly last--Laurie Sheck. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover.
