This is a unique way to learn the dynamics of this incredible dance as well as the intense tribulations of a people. Interspersed through the book are short sections of prose, linking dancers in individuality and in partnership to their inner selves, exploring the dimensions of mind and heart.
The art work is sublime, subtle, suggestive, always drawing you in ever closer to your innermost romance and turmoil.
This bilingual version is a great way to learn the language of the tango as well as the Spanish that is particular to Buenos Aires. The poems are recreated in Argentine Spanish, with impeccable and painstaking conformity to local dialect.
An amazing find, this book is a must-have, especially for every artist, poet and dancer, experienced and aspiring.
A fascinating combination: passionate poetry (almost erotic) on the TANGO, and original drawings in her own masterly style of tango dancers. I read this book by Mong-Lan so many times, and continue to discover the nuances each time. It's a bilingual book -- so you can learn Spanish or English with each reading. Just great!!
Dice un poeta grande y muy importante de este libro de Mong-Lan -- Juan Felipe Herrera: "Un logro hipnotizante -- cuatro voces a su climax: el baile, si podemos llamarlo así, la física de ser, la historia y manual de la belleza oscura y los voleos de línea, tinta, estrofa e espíritu, las capas de pérdida, el deseo y el cuerpo en explosiones extáticas. Tres gotas de Lorca, una tintura de María Luisa Bombal,y una vasija llena de Mong-Lan, una obra maestra, señores y señoras. Una matemática de fuego."
A mathematics of FIRE -- indeed! The fire of tango and poetry!
When I read her poems, I get transported to that place where all the senses get stimulated and overwhelmed by the music and the dance.....one word at a time....one Poem at a time.
The book combines more than one writing style, making it more interesting and dynamic reading. Her drawings seem to come alive as the echoing of her poems draw your attention to them.
This book will entice you to the amazing world of Tango! A must read!
