Las traducciones de Daniel Aguirre y de Marcelo Cohen, así como los textos que las acompañan, suponen los angeles cabal presentación en el ámbito hispánico de un poeta esencial de nuestro tiempo.

    A.R. Ammons es uno de los grandes poetas norteamericanos del siglo XX. Junto a John Ashbery, es sin duda uno de los pocos que supieron seguir con valentía el camino abierto por Wallace Stevens, su antecesor más cercano.

    Reseña:
    «Ammons se presenta como el poeta del intransigente regulate geométrico de los angeles Tierra sobre los hombres. Tuvo que aprender a ser distinto de lo que period y regresar de nuevo a los orígenes, con una exigencia musical siempre mayor. El canon de l. a. poesía estadounidense lo insertará en los angeles tradición quizá más profundamente de lo que él pretendía.»
