About the Book

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, The Fire’s Journey will be published by Tavern Books in an English translation for the first time across four volumes.

"Odio’s poem of self-making echoes Neruda, Walt Whitman, and The Bible (though not in that order) and perhaps even predicts Gabriel García-Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. It is an ambitious, over-reaching origin tale in which the self and the world take shape together." 

—Dean Rader, The Huffington Post
