Little Stones at My Window

Selected Poems of Mario Benedetti

These poems range in theme from pain of exile to joys of love to the horrors of political repression. Benedetti also frequently conveys with Kafkaesque irony the impact of bureaucracy on the lives of ordinary citizens. His latest poems in this collection focus on the personal and collective problems of reintegration into a wounded and changed society and the desire for universal brotherhood.

About the Author

Mario Benedetti was born in 1920 in Uruguay. He lived much of his life in political exile. Writing from exile, he was able to inform the world about the tragic events in his own country and to gain international recognition.

"Benedetti's lyricism and political message combine in a collection of poetry whose time has certainly come." -- Harvard Book Review

"A miraculous collection that explores with fierce tenderness the everyday hope we need to survive." -- Ariel Dorfman
