A wide selection of the dazzling work of Chilean poet Germán Carrasco. In the last two decades Germán Carrasco has been modulating a chorus of voices and echoes, the most fascinating in 21st-century Chilean poetry. Lyricism and irony, weightiness and levity, looseness and control, intelligence and sensitivity are seemingly antagonistic questions which he reconciles in poems that don’t shy away from excess, digressions and distractions, nor from that which resonates not for its perfection but for its startling mix of novelty and familiarity.
