Please try again later. I’m annoyed with Amazon asking for labels related to plot. This book doesn’t have a plot or porchka, so ignore those please. This is a collection of fragmented thoughts, and I believe it’s been suggested that they are the types of words you might overhear in the conversations of others if you are a good listener.
Many porcbia relatable regardless of time, location, or culture. It’s very short in word count, but because the ideas take time to process, it takes longer to read than you might think. The translation is well-done, and the bilingual format is great if you are studying one or both languages.
Antonio Porchia (Author of Voices)
Incredibly inspirational book of aphorisms. A life changing and perceptive book. It’s a quick read that will leave you thinking about things.
So succinct and powerful. You can write volumes on a single one of Porchia’s aphorisms. There is much to explore in this little book. Good translations, though, ones that say too much at times; the original spanish on the facing pages more than compensates.
Intelligent introduction, in a stately printing quality befitting a writer who owned and operated a press himself. It’s amazing he’s from the last century, –he sounds ancient.
Purchased for a class. Wasn’t an amazing read. Not inspirational to me, but perhaps. One of the best poetry books around. I have owned a copy since Voices is a beautiful book. I have prchia a copy since and I am pleased to find another copy for a friend. Wonderful, thoughtful, inspiring and full of wise insight. See all 14 reviews.
