Haunted Algebra

William Ospina

NON FICTION. PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE, 2012. 160 PAGES.

Of poets and dreamers, of spells and juggling, is made this book of essays. And indeed, as a sorcerer who is adding ingredients to his steaming pot, William Ospina has summoned the magical arts of Poe and Chesterton, Eliot and Neruda, of Alfonso Reyes and Estanislao Zuleta, of Jose Asuncion Silva and Jorge Isaacs, of Quevedo, Shakespeare, Dickens and Borges, to move us to the depths and lead us to be relentless certain that life without them, without their texts, would be less luminous, lose much of its grace.
