Eduardo Milán. Habla (noventa poemas). 2005. 121 pp.

The Uruguayan poet Milán. As the title says, there are 90 poems. It's a little hard for me to get into this guy's work. I'm sympathetic in principle to this intellectual tradition of self-conscious poetry about poetry. The problem, mabye, is the ratio of really great poems to so-so ones. Or maybe I just don't get Milán yet. I should be able to meet him in Tenerife in about a month.
