A poet of both the body and spirit, the work of R mulo Bustos Aguirre often explores the nature of existence at the turn of the twenty-first century--humankind's relationship to itself and the universe, the meaning or purpose, if any, of human existence, and the daunting task of discerning that meaning. Critics have described his poetry as highly refined lyricism, metaphysical, existential, and at times erotic. Semantics of the World introduces the English-speaking world to the exciting work of R mulo Bustos Aguirre, one of Colombia's most celebrated living writers.

This selection of extraordinary poems, edited and translated by Nohora Arrieta Fern ndez and Mark A. Sanders, presents Bustos Aguirre's works in Spanish alongside their English translations and features the critical apparatus necessary for making Bustos Aguirre's poetry more accessible to students, scholars, and the general reading public. The volume offers the perfect introduction to R mulo Bustos Aguirre and his poetry for critical and popular audiences throughout the Anglosphere.
