Kaluluwa: New and Selected Poems

really liked it 4.00  ·  Rating details ·  7 ratings  ·  0 reviews
Death is the muse of these new poems.

Written in a period of grave illness, Kaluluwa turns the tables on traditional disquistions on the subject: the speaker of these mournful meditations, these terse and urgent lyrics is the self-as-body, mortally aggrieved, and looking to its soul for assurance, for consolation, and finally, for a restitution of its fragile claims on life
Paperback, 320 pages
Published 2001 by the University of Santo Tomas Publishing House
