The second poem, Neochilenos, is excellent. View all 3 comments. Sep 26, jeremy rated it it was amazing Shelves: poetry , translation. I'm not normally a poetry reader, but I enjoyed this collection very much.
Written in a simple prose-style, these three tres long poems are a fast read, but an intriguing read. The result is a dark view of life, but not so dark that we can't work through it and continue on our respective journeys. The first poem "Prose from Autumn in Gerona" is about a tenuous love affair with I'm not normally a poetry reader, but I enjoyed this collection very much.
The first poem "Prose from Autumn in Gerona" is about a tenuous love affair with "the stranger" who seems to be leading him around by the testes while shredding his heart, but as with all passionate love affairs, he seems enraptured by her. The second is called "The Neochileans" which is the name of a band that hits the road in a van, on tour through the hinterlands of Northern Chile, then onward to Peru and Ecuador. Throughout the "tour", the band struggles for recognition or even simple appreciation.
The third poem, "A Stroll Through Literature" is a series of simple prose-poem statements about the poet's dreams and the various writers who appear in his dream visions. This edition is bi-lingual with the Spanish original versions facing the English translation. Jul 15, Peter Evans rated it it was amazing. Bolano's works have been recipients of the attentions of three very fine translators.. The Tres publication shows both the Spanish and their translations side by side..
She has read me many of the Spanish versions in Tres, and while the language defeats me, the sonic qualities, the tones and modulations are a marvel, at least to me. Read in En Bolano's works have been recipients of the attentions of three very fine translators.. Read in English, Tres is an interesting collection of both prose and poetry, and a mingling of the two.. This collection may be a fine read pre the tackling of or Savage Detectives, both grand favourites of mine.

It's going to be a damn tough case, Mr. Twain, I told him. I dreamt I was falling in love with Alice Sheldon. She didn't want me. So I tried getting myself killed on three continents.

Not poetry neither in content or form, more like brief personal diary entries personal as in "only important for me in this precise moment", not as in "intimate, yet universal". Except from some few beautiful phrases, this "book" is extremely disappointing. And I strongly believe that "Tres" shouldn't exist as a book.

It rather could and should be included as a pages Not poetry neither in content or form, more like brief personal diary entries personal as in "only important for me in this precise moment", not as in "intimate, yet universal". It rather could and should be included as a pages supplement because its real length is about 15 pages, the rest is white space in some collection of those made of bits and scraps that they published years after his death.
This is the poetry of a very lonely man. The poetry of someone who only has his creations and influences to keep him company.
Red Emma's: Tres (Bilingual Edition) by Roberto Bolaño and Laura Healy
All the beauty of fantasy and excitement of inspiration is there, but so too is the bitter reality of conversing with only phantoms. His hopeless approach to writing in general is inspiring. The lack of respect for establishment writing is refreshing. At the end of the day though it's a little frighteni This is the poetry of a very lonely man.
At the end of the day though it's a little frightening to travel into his labyrinth, to become a partner to his Latin American detective. Jun 10, Timb rated it liked it.

I did very well in that class, if only because I was very effectively motivated to attend. And I like impractical knowledge. Blurbs should be permanently scrapped.
Dec 01, Ursula Villarreal-Moura rated it liked it Shelves: poetry. It didn't gel the way his best writing typically does. However, the last section was stunning and the ending was absolutely perfect. Dec 03, Pau rated it liked it. Jul 09, Mark rated it liked it. There's a similar fracturing effect that this collection of poems has, of both time and space. The first and most interesting segment is a cinematic effort of numbered poems that hearkens back to Antwerp , written before Tres but published afterwards.
Time and space seem unchanging here, inescapable; the protagonist is stuck, figuratively if not literally any longer, in Gerona in autumn, the scene of his own Atlantis moment, which he is forced to replay endlessly.
Tres (Bilingual Edition)
I should say "the protagonist," as he is explicitly called in Brechtian fashion, and who is also referenced as "I," "you," and "the author;" these shifts from first- to second- to third-person invoke the nature of the kaleidoscope again, positioning the narrator, impossibly, as both watcher and watched. The fragmenting of reality has already begun, as the narrator desperately twists the kaleidoscope to find an image that will make sense of it all for him, changing what he can, including the p.
He can't escape his own text, can't stop seeing the world through the same lens, like he has no agency; much as he has no apparent choice in being a writer, he has no ability to make choices for himself. The second is a poem of motion that is also in motion, one fluid poem as opposed to the many of the first segment, describing movement throughout Chile and past the borders.
Not in a bad way!
