Está lleno de metáforas y contradicciones, lleno de palabras indicadas. Benedetti sabía muy bien lo que hacía. Es armonioso, lleno de paz y de encanto con un gusto que se gana desde los primeros versos.

"después de todo / pese a todo
hay una alegría extraña / desbloqueada
en saber que aún podemos estar tristes"

Perdón,pero no puedo creer que haya solo una opción a este gran libro, y que sea un audiolibro con la voz de "vaya a saber uno quien" es esta mujer.
¡No entiendo como nadie conoce a este grade de la literatura Latinoamericana!.
Crecí leyendo tus hermosos poemas... y esas 5 estrellas te quedan chicas.
Al que jamás lo leyó,le recomiendo cualquier poema o cualquier novela. Todas son excelentes.

Lectura rápida y hermosa, me llevó menos de un día terminarlo y lo disfruté de principio a fin. Recomiendo leerlo.

La poesía y Benedetti, un solo corazón. Textos cortos que se dejan penetrar; lo disfruté mucho y pienso seguir leyendo material de su autoría. Por lo pronto, esta primera experiencia me deja un sabor dulce.

"solo yo no quisiera ser otro
mejor dicho yo
quisiera ser yo
pero un poco mejor"

Es tan corto... Nunca puedo tener suficiente de las palabras de Benedetti.
