By Luis Chaves, Julia Guez (Translator), Samantha Zighelboim (Translator)


In Luis Chaves's EQUESTRIAN MONUMENTS, the stately figure of a former president, Leon Cort's, is counterbalanced by a cast of mock-heroic or non-normative foils: a cross-dresser, a singleton, homunculus, thief, and gardener. Dialogue from The Exorcist coexists alongside lines from the Latin Kyrie, Rex, while sweeping statements about entire generations, continents, and genres find a basis in the most intimate details of home-life. The intersections are uncanny, sometimes hilarious, often sad and unsettling. Chaves's hyper-caffeinated imagination renders each image in this remarkable collection in a way that orients the reader and provides a moment's stasis and clarity before the waves come and the waves erase it.

Poetry. Translated by Julia Guez and Samantha Zighelboim.
