In this experimental work, the author risks personifying poems themselves so that they harangue and criticize each other. The Killing of Dreams reveals another facet of a perennially interesting writer. This collection of poems in English displays a surprisingly broad range of subjects and styles. Included is a debate on the nature of poetry itself, a farewell to pastoral, and a long, exotic poem about salvation, ‘Mountains, Fall on Us’, which brings to mind the author’s already celebrated ‘The Retreat of Ita Cagney’.
