Poesía eras tú by Francisco Hinojosa( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best known for his many children's books, including La peor señora del mundo ("The Worst Woman in the World," Fondo de Cultura Economica, 1992), Mexican author Hinojosa brings the humor, whimsy, and darkness that fill those stories to this book of poems. A missing pig, drugs, nudity, and foul play all come to bear before this love story is over. The title of the book refers to a famous line from "Rima XXI" by Spanish poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer; when asked what poetry is, the narrator responds: "Poesía ... eres tú" ("Poetry ... is you"). The playful title is an indication of the irreverent poetry within. The epistolary poems are written by an amateur poet and pig farmer to his legislator girlfriend. The self-centered narrator sends his lover missives that he believes are keeping their failed relationship together. In fact, these "love poems" are petty and spiteful. His seeming earnestness is the glue that binds these poems together and brings a laugh at the end of every page. Hinojosa achieves the dark comedic effect by a well-timed undercutting of the language of bad love poems. For the full experience, read the poems in order in one sitting.--Salwa Jabado, New York City

Join the totally chingón forces on the Pocho Villa liberation army ..." Los muros, más la luz tenue que los alumbraba desde la calle, eran una clara invitación a la placentera pesadilla."--Page 2 of cover

Adaptado al teatro, al cine, a la radio, al video, a la comedia musical, al cómic e incluso al teatro guiñol, Francisco Hinojosa es autor de los cuentos más revolucionarios y singulares que se han visto en la literatura mexicana en las últimas cuatro décadas. ( No se parece a nada que conozcamos , escribió Fabienne Bradú; Zambutió a Chava Flores, La ley de Herodes y La región más transparente en una sola e hilarante píldora , reconoció Julio Trujillo; Un caso único de la literatura mexicana , confirmó Juan Villoro; Se ponen en marcha y casi nada puede detenerlos , remató Roberto Pliego). Además de artistas malísimos pero con gran éxito comercial, de criminales felices pero sin escrúpulos, Hinojosa es el creador de la mejor novela escrita en malos versos, del mejor detective surgido de una fábrica de clips y de la peor señora del mundo, entre otros personajes fascinantes, asentados en sus breves obras maestras
