Summary
  • "Of the fifty-eight pieces in Antipoems, the first twenty-three are taken from Parra's 1985 collection, Hojas de Parra ("Vine Leaves" or "Leaves of Parra"), two others appeared in his Paginas en Blanco ("Blank Pages," 2001), while the rest come straight out of his notebooks and have never been collected before, either in Spanish or English. The book itself is divided into two sections, "Antipoems" (im)proper and a selection of Parra's most recent incarnation of the antipoem, the hand-drawn images of his "Visual Artefactos.""
  • "Born in 1914 in the southern city of Chillan, Parra spent many years as a teacher of mathematics and a professor of physics. As his antitranslator Liz Werner explains in her introduction, Parra's scientific training infuses his work. "Viewed through the lens of antimatter," she writes, "antipoetry mirrors poetry, not as its adversary but as its perfect complement ... it is as opposite, complete, and interdependent as the shape left behind in the fabric where the garment has been cut out.""--Jacket
