Journal with No Subject

Synopsis

The first collection of the poetry of Juan Calzadilla to be translated into English, Journal with No Subject spans eleven books published from 1962 to the present. This poetry denounces the dehumanization of modernity, appropriates surrealistic language, questions identity and poetry itself, and dissolves the coherent, autonomous subject. Uniting political and aesthetic radicalism, Calzadilla ultimately reestablishes faith in poetry.

Praise for this Book

‘Calzadilla's poetry makes us suspect what we see, which is exactly what a great messenger of doubt, the authentic poet, should do.’ —Juan Manuel Roca, Jose Lezama Lima Latin American Poetry Prize, 2007

‘... a concise, fulminant beauty, ample in its resonance ...’ —Daniel Samoilovich, author of Driven by the Wind and Drenched to the Bone
