  • Destruction or Love


    Vicente Aleixandre.


    Green Horse Press: 1976. First edition, signed by the translator. Paperback. Moderate soiling to the yellow paper wrap, interior clean and crisp. Very good. 


    "Yes, I've wanted you as never before


    Why kiss your lips, knowing death is near,

    knowing that loving is only forgetting life,

    closing our eyes against the present darkness

    to open them on the shining limits of a body."
