(159) *Juan Sánchez Pelaez. Un día sea. 1972. 135 pp.


(158) Juan Sánchez Pelaez. Aire sobre el aire. 1989. 33 pp.

Sánchez Pelaez in his early work is in the thrall of a certain surrealist rhetoric. Un día sea is really a collection of 4 books, Elena y los elementos, Animal de costumbre, Filiación oscura, and Lo huidizo y lo permanente.

I still like Gerbasi and Montejo better, among Venezuelan poets.
