Still Another Day by Pablo Neruda
"This small collection of Neruda's last words has great power, and the translation keeps that power while being close to a transliteration. Neruda weaves the imagery and themes of a lifetime together with local and national Chilean history to creat..." Read more of this review »

Paradise Lost by John Milton
“Into this wild Abyss/ The womb of Nature, and perhaps her grave--/ Of neither sea, nor shore, nor air, nor fire,/ But all these in their pregnant causes mixed/ Confusedly, and which thus must ever fight,/ Unless the Almighty Maker them ordain/ His dark materials to create more worlds,--/ Into this wild Abyss the wary Fiend/ Stood on the brink of Hell and looked a while,/ Pondering his voyage; for no narrow frith/ He had to cross. ”
John Milton

The Unconscious as Infinite Sets by Ignacio Matte Blanco
"This is an extraordinary (out of the ordinary) book in many senses. It is an exceptional attempt to reformulate the Freud psychoanalysis in terms of logic-mathematical concepts, following a scientific method procedure as much as possible. In that..." Read more of this review »

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway
“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Garden of Eden

Ernest Hemingway
“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Ernest Hemingway
“As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.”
Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway
“Forget your personal tragedy. We are all bitched from the start and you especially have to be hurt like hell before you can write seriously. But when you get the damned hurt, use it-don't cheat with it.”
Ernest Hemingway
