Item description for Pieces of shadow. Selected poems (Tenzontle) by Sabines Jaime...

Pieces of Shadow gathers a selection of poetry by twentieth century Mexican writer Jaime Sabines, one of the most important figures in Spanish-American Literature. This book assembles poems from his most recognized books, such as Horal (1950), Tarumba (1956), Yuria (1967) or Other Collected Poemes (1950-1995), titles wich earned Sabines many devoted readers and enthusiastic critics. The anthology has been translated into English by American poet W.S. Merwin. In Merwin's words, what captures him of sabines poetry was "the jarring authenticity of pasion in [the] tone, a great cracked bell note o f craving and frustration, irony and anger, outrage and black humor all jangled at once, unabashed, ubsweetened, unappeased, and all of it esssential to the rest". These same features still remain in Sabines' poestry for the new readesrs who will inmerse in the literary work of a classic of modern Mexican literature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pieces of shadow. Selected poems (Tenzontle)?

A basic poet.  Jan 3, 2004
Nowadays, you cannot pull apart Jaime Sabines from Latin American Poetry. He did what hadn't been in years. Young readers telling his poems. And as the film "Il Postino" quotes, "Poetry belongs to which needs it, not to it's creator". You can find in this poems all you always wanted to express but you were affraid to do so. He is EXQUISITE but a "day after day poet". Read one poem every night as the dessert of your days. I am proud of such a talent. The translations in this book keep the sensivity that Jabines gave us. He is a master of life. He is now, breaking language and culture, a basic poet.
No one can express about life, love, death and pain as Sabines did. The simplicity of his words enclose the beauty of "everyday life". He wrote for him, and for common people, not for poets, big writers or critics. I just can tell one of the most intense experiences of my whole life, was a reading of his poems in the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City. More than 3,000 people cried, laughed, cheered, and loved at the same time there. And the whole show was an old man, reading his poems in a wheelchair, behind a desk. Nothing more.
Sabines, a wise-guy poet  Oct 31, 1998
Since Sabines has worked on a simple poetry, and since his acceptance has been quite enthusiastic, he has done a lot of easy, quite boring poetry for the people. I would only recommend the first books, "Tarumba", "Adán y Eva", "Horal", and "La señal".
The most simple and feel poetry!  Jun 15, 1997
Jaime Sabines is the mexican author that write about his earth like this was the heart! His poetry is very popular! and his words are very, very simples...! it is his sensitive!!!
