The Origin of Species and Other Poems, Hardback Book

The Origin of Species and Other Poems Hardback



Ernesto Cardenal, widely acknowledged as Latin America's greatest living poet, continues to craft works of striking beauty, as demonstrated in this collection's title poem, an exquisite meditation on Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.

Among the twenty new poems included here are many appearing for the first time in English, some for the first time anywhere.

Cardenal has also added new cantigas, or cantos, to supplement his book-length masterpiece, Cosmic Canticle.
