Item description for The Cycle of Learning/El ciclo de aprendizaje by Jorge H. Aigla...
This enchanting set of poems explores the mystery of learning and the problem of internalizing awareness in a world where discovery often takes place outside of language: through a loving child who cares for a hungry butterfly at the bottom of the Grand Canyon; through the death of a karate-do sensei; through the warmth of a mother holding her son's hand while gaping at improbable creatures in a natural history museum. The collection is also an essay in translation: poems generated in either Spanish or English, transformed by the other language, face each other across a previously thought unbridgeable page divide.
