    This book is a song to the magnificent Chilean artist Violeta Parra, sung not by poets or musicians, but by a scientist. Tenline stanzas, the verse form primarily used in Latin American poetry, are preferred by Violeta in her writings
    and in some of her most beautiful songs. The stanzas in the pages of this book describe deep passions.

    Rustic cover book, 20 x 20 cms., opaque couche 170 grs., 52 pages. 4/4, hot melt.

     Among roses and lilies
    a songbird sang
    as a wise caretaker
    of a thousand joys, a thousand sorrows

    But he carried chains
    that restricted his worth
    unable then to traverse
    the wide sky like a comet
    and then and there he asked Violeta

    permission to break out.

    (excerpt winning poem Violeta Liberadora, Alex Guerrero and Camila Rojas, teachers)
