*Antonio Gamoneda. Reescritura. 2003. 75 pp.

This book consists of fragments of poems written over a fifty-year period and then revised in the early twenty-first century. The effect is that of a single long poem. Titles of individual poems are supressed; in some cases, a book-length poem will be represented here by a four line fragment. By revising very early poems, Gamoneda brings them into line with the ethos of his later style.

AG contributes a brief preface in which he explains what he is doing. There is also a CD of him reading the whole thing.
