Eyes to See Otherwise
Selected Poems of Homero Aridjis, 1960-2000
Time of Angels
One of Mexico's most admired poets addresses the intangible reign of the angels amidst the ruins of our daily life. These poems offer faith in the eloquent silence of the angels as a sign of hope and point to glimpses of their presence among us. Time of Angels is a fable of sorts, with each poem accompanied by a drawing by Francisco Toledo in a deluxe, bilingual limited edition. Homero Aridjis (Solar Poems, City Lights Publishers, 2010) is also known for his pioneering work as an environmental activist and diplomat. Francisco Toledo is an internationally renowned painter and sculptor from Oaxaca, Mexico.
