Reviews - What do our customers think?
An important poetic voice of Chile  May 7, 2001
"From the Country of Nevermore: Selected Poems of Jorge Teillier" is a bilingual edition of the work of a poet from Chile. This volume features Teillier's Spanish-language originals on every even-numbered page, with the English translations by Mary Crow on every odd-numbered page. Crow also wrote an introduction.

Crow notes in her introduction the United States poet Edgar Allan Poe has been a major influence on Teillier (b. 1935). Indeed, many of the poems in this collection have a melancholy, Poe-like flavor. I personally found that many of his poems employ a simplicity of language that is weighty with metaphysical import; in that way, Teillier's work reminds me of the poetry of Stephen Crane, another 19th century United States writer.

The poems in this volume often deal with the changing seasons, nature, and rural scenes. The poems also frequently deal with words and language. Teillier often seems to find human language insufficient to express the deeper truths of the universe: "Words are nothing / beside the leaf that comes to life when it passes before your face" (from "Story of the Afternoon").

His poetry frequently has a stark, eery beauty to it. His imagery is often quite striking. Consider this address to snow (from "Night Snow"): "What fingers drop you, / pulverized skeleton of petals?" Those interested in Latin American literature or contemporary poetry should listen to the voice of Jorge Teillier.
