One of Mexico's most admired poets addresses the intangible reign of the angels amidst the ruins of our daily life. These poems offer faith in the eloquent silence of the angels as a sign of hope and point to glimpses of their presence among us. Time of Angels is a fable of sorts, with each poem accompanied by a drawing by Francisco Toledo in a deluxe, bilingual limited edition.
Homero Aridjis (Solar Poems, City Lights Publishers, 2010) is also known for his pioneering work as an environmental activist and diplomat.
Francisco Toledo is an internationally renowned painter and sculptor from Oaxaca, Mexico.
"Aridjis, through his political and environmental work, has fought to save the planet and its species, but the poems in A Time for Angels allow him to explore darker territory . . . More than a time for angels, Aridjis's poems suggest, it is a time for self-reckoning."—Words Without Borders
"Aridjis, one of Mexico's most admired poets, believes that angels are among us, moving among gritty realities in silent hope. In this illustrated, bilingual limited edition, the poet shares glimpses of angels all around us."—SF Weekly
