The Fire's Journey, Part III: The Cathedral's Work



After the chaos of the first two volumes of The Fire’s Journey, where the world was formless and void yet teeming with the shape of life to come, and Ion the poet-hero took mortal form to battle the Void, in Part III we begin to encounter a landscape that looks more like the one we know today. Ion has entered the world. A much-neglected masterpiece of 20th-century Latin American poetry, this is the third of four volumes of an English translation of The Fire's Journey, published by Tavern Books.
