El Cielo en La Fuente/La Mañana Eterna
(The Sky in the Fountain/The Eternal Morning)
Book: 130 pages

Two episodes in the history of the soul are developed within the conceptual challenge and the sound-magic of Jesusa’s journey and Pedrito’s plenitude: the affirmative no and the intoxication of the truth, two of the many levels of both poems. In The Sky in the Fountain, Jesusa, although destroyed by her determination to carry out her aim, remains faithful: retreating, she advances. In The Eternal Morning, youth offers its goblet. The composition of The Sky in the Fountain took its author a score of years. The poem was originally published in 1977, in Buenos Aires. The Eternal Morning is presented here for the first time.
