I thought I had included this in the series but apparently. Roca is one of the best contemporary Colombian poets, first recommended to me by the Spanish poet Jorge Riechmann. Roca's poems are very memorable: I found that I remembered quite a few from the last time I read this book.

The idea of Pessoa's five funerals is that his heterónimos will be buried with him.
