description

Moon Across the Way (1925) and San Martín Copybook (1929) are the last two books that complete the poetic trilogy Borges had started with Fervor of Buenos Aires (1923).
There is a particular, tangible atmosphere that acts as a bond among those three collections, one that goes beyond the lyrical tone and elegance one may instantly perceive even after the first quick glance. Through the art of poetry (that Borges later on would keep cultivating, letting it become another part of his being, unfortun

Luna de enfrente lo componen 17 poemas. Escrito en 1925, después de volver Borges de Europa. Son poemas de polvo y asfalto, donde Borges explora, registra las calles, los barrios, los arrabales y suburbios de Buenos Aires, la pampa que se derrama el horizonte, con presencia de ocasos, tardes mutiladas, ponientes sangrantes, !y cómo no!, la luna: un fulgor, una voz; calles que se oyen como un verso, y el mar, muy presente, para alguien como Borges cuya escritura era nadar entre dos orillas, o inc ...more

Li em uma sentada. Nem deu tempo de o mate se lavar. Da ruas e bairros de Buenos Aires, e de mortes - anônimas e familiares. E as atitudes diante da morte vão da inocência, como nos versos finais do poema "Isidoro Acevedo":

"En metáfora de viaje me dijeron su muerte; no la creí.
Yo era chico, yo no sabía entonces de muerte, yo era inmortal;
yo lo busqué por muchos días por los cuartos sin luz."

até a madura conclusão de que morte e vida constituem-se dialeticamente, em "Muertes de Buenos Aires":

These are two separate books. Luna was written in 1925 and Cuaderno in 1929. I read them in Spanish. Very nostalgic. I like Argentina and am always saddened by what happened in the conflict in the early 80s.
Angelo Giardini
"Ser moderno é ser contemporâneo, ser atual; todos fatalmente o somos. Ninguém - a não ser certo aventureiro sonhado por Wells - descobriu a arte de viver no futuro ou no passado. Não há obra que não seja de seu tempo (...)"

“Vibrante en las espadas y en la pasión
y dormidas en la hiedra,
solo la vida existe.
El espacio y el tiempo son formas suyas,
son instrumentos mágicos del alma,
y cuando ésta se apague,
se apagarán con ella el espacio, el tiempo y la muerte,
como al cesar la luz
caduca el simulacro de los espejos." ('La recoleta', Luna de enfrente - 1925)”
