    Mario Benedetti

    I am interested in comparing notes on translations of his poems. My Spanish is poor and I have questions about translations, word choices and meaning.

    This is a fairly well-known author in narrow circles, I would be interested to read his books.

    One step at a time. Tell me what poem you are interested in. Luego todo será coser y cantar.

    I like Benedetti. I read some of his prose, but none of his poems.

    All I know is that he is a great essay writer, and every single work that he does - will amuse the reader of it's genuine quality and all kinds of improvisation of mind. Some places can be taken like boring, but in general his books are interested, if you understand his style of writing, and he uses these or those writing methods.
