Throughout his career, Eduardo Chillida did not stop questioning everything that was relevant to his commitment to art. Without wishing to create a deliberation parallel to his work, he used writing as a way to keep his thoughts, using notebooks, fragments of paper or margins of drawings and notes ... He did it in an intermittent way, without a pre-established order, by hand. They were intimate reflections, for his own use, destined to preserve the questions to which he repeatedly returned.

This volume brings together all his writings, mostly unpublished to date, compiled and edited in collaboration with the artist's family. They are divided into five sections: 'Miradas', where Chillida addresses issues such as perception, knowledge, the sea, human rights or religious belief, all of them connected by the bond of poetry; 'Codes of the artist', a chapter that gathers his reflections on creation; 'I am an outlaw', a long text written in prose that was probably a draft of a conference; 'Questions', written as an entry speech at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando, a synthesis of the essential issues that concerned him as
an artist throughout his life; and 'Homenajes', where the sculptor pays tribute to people and artists such as Gabriel Aresti, Pio Baroja, Bach, Joan Brossa, Joan Miro, Mark Rothko or Maria Zambrano, among many others.
