Review

The Unknown University is the 800 page bilingual totality of Roberto Bolano's poetry. The range and diversity of the collection is immense; some poems read like movie scenes and others like surreal and loosely connected prose vignettes. There are poems both personal and philosophical, beautiful and grotesque, and formal and experimental. These inspired ramblings can make the mundane and personal more profound and even seedy darkness seem lighter and more endearing through Bolano's lens.
