Save Twilight

San Francisco, CA: City Lights Books, 2016 (1984). First Edition Thus. Softcover. "World renowned as a master of modern fiction, Julio Cortazar was also a prolific poet. While living in Paris during the last months of his life, Cortazar assembled his life's work in verse for publication, and "Save Twilight" selects the best of that volume, making his poems available in English for the very first time. This expanded edition, with nearly one hundred new pages of poems, prose and illustrations, is a book to be savored by both the familiar reader and the newcomer to Cortazar's work. Ranging from the intimate to the political, tenderness to anger, heartbreak to awe, in styles both formal and free, Cortazar the subverter of genres is revealed as a versatile and passionate virtuoso. More than a collection of poems, this book is a playful and revealing self-portrait of a writer in love with language in all its forms." (back cover) Book in very fine condition with only slight rubbing to front, back covers; slight shelf-wear to same; bump-crease at bottom right-hand corner of back cover. Very Fine. [Item #2695]
