it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, translations

Finally, Borges' poems are available in an edition that gives them room to breathe. He is revealed here as what afficionados knew him to be all along--one of the great poets of the 20th century. His poetry takes second billing to his fiction, but I'm not convinced that the fiction is actually better. The fiction is amazing stuff, but this poetry rocks.
