This book gathers together the complete poetry of Jorge Carrera Andrade, considered—and rightly so—to be the best Ecuadorean poet of the 20th century. Carrera Andrade uses short forms that are largely free of Baroque mannerisms and close to the poetry of Asia, with a marvelous capacity for depicting landscape and impressions through visual metaphor. “Purify the world of shadowy thoughts—this is the essence. Let the eye ready its ship for a new discovery.”
