    1. Wallace Stevens is one of the best poets, not only of the twentieth century, but ever- when he's not being 'witty,' which makes me think of the worst dad jokes dad can devise; and when he's not droning on about how the poet is some sort of mega-prophet who will save us all from well, he doesn't say what it saves us from, but it is surely the pose most likely to induce eye-rolling fever in a reader.

    2. LA IDEA DE ORDEN EN CAYO HUESO[…] Así nosotros,al contemplar las zancadas que daba allá ella sola,sabíamos que nunca hubo un mundo para ella,excepto el que cantaba y, al cantar, hacía. […]Oh, dichosa manía por el orden, pálido Ramón,manía del artífice por ordenar palabras de la mar, palabras de los fragantes portales, tenuemente estrellados,y de nosotros, de nuestros orígenes,en más fantasmagóricas demarcaciones, más nítidos sonidos. MOZART, 1935[…]Podemos retornar a Mozart. [...]


    3. Hay épocas en las que resulta más necesario que nunca leer poesía. Stevens consigue ya desde el título obrar el milagro de mitigar el caos reinate y hacer más llevadera la realidad. Excelente libro en una excelente traducción al castellano de Daniel Aguirre.
