Pluriverse: New and Selected Poems is the most extensive compilation
of poems in English by Ernesto Cardenal - "one of the world's major poets"
(Choice) and "the preeminent poet of Central America today" (Library Journal).
Follow Cardenal's poetic development across six decades, from the early
exteriorismo poems and romantic epigrams of the early 1950s, to the increasingly
spiritually and politically engaged verse he wrote as priest and activist
- including his classic revolutionary documentary poem "Zero Hour"- to
the shorter victory and ecology poems and the elegies to fallen Sandinistas,
to the cosmic-mystical-scientific dimensions of his later work. "Here they
are -," editor Jonathan Cohen writes in his Introduction, "to gladden your
heart and enrich your soul."
