In his native country, Xavier Oquendo Troncoso is the most significant representative of an esthetic that has as its guiding principle the return of poetry to the people. He is one of the poets who figures in the international movement Poetry Facing Uncertainty.
Poems that Love Me is an anthology of poetry that draws on his family, his readings of the classics and the scriptures, his friends and his lovers. Imbued with nostalgia and irony, his poems are emotionally charged and direct. They connect very well with contemporary readers. Author Xavier Oquendo TroncosoTranslation Gordon E.
