This book is in English and Spanish, set out so that the Spanish version of the poem is on the left hand page and the English translatiomn is on the right. (very handy if you're learning Spanish!)
You will find yourself lingering over his poetry as it creates beautiful images in your mind, it's very romantic and sensual.
With lines like "Leaning into the afternoons I cast my sad nets towards your oceanic eyes" and "The light wraps you in its mortal flame" his descriptions and his way with words is wonderful.
I highly recommend his love poetry and this is one of my favourites of his, as well as "love poems"Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook)
He has inspired some of my work to become more sensual!
Review by Juliette Westbrook-Finch, author of The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse)
It is a dual language book having each poem in English and Spanish; it only contains 21 poems but they are of the highest quality and you will be left wanting to read more of his books!
I highly recommend it and if you enjoyed this you will also like his "100 Love Sonnets" and his "Love Poems"
Another book that's writen in a sensual way but also humorous is "The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse)" by Juliette Westbrook-Finch, I also recommend that, very different in that it all rhymes but if you like love poetry you'll love that too.

That was a present for someone who was moving to Chile. Cant comment on content myself.Published 5 months ago by Fabienne
Great poems. A parallel text so the Spanish original is available too.Published 7 months ago by jimmy
Very thin book but of course that's what it says from the number of pages and the only few poems it contains. But still very pleasant to read.Published 9 months ago by Victoria77
Not such a great collection, and not even that romantic, erotic or sweet to be honest.
More on nature and general collection, some nice sad poems though.
