Within the bibliography of Serbian-American poet Charles Simic, "El mundo no se acaba" marks a clear before and after. The only book of prose poems ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, these poems mark Simic s artistic growth, towards poems with a finger on the pulse of American popular culture in all of its voices and wants. Upon its original publication in 1989, this book was Simic s answer to poetry s cry for a revolution, and showcases what continues to be his singular way of seeing the world, of revealing subjects to themselves only after they have learned to laugh at their own pain."show more
