A harrowing meditation on tyranny, torture, and freedom by one of Chile's most celebrated contemporary poets. RaUl Zurita's INRI is a visionary response to the atrocities committed under the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. In this deeply moving elegy for the dead, the whole of Chile, with its snow-covered cordilleras and fields of wildflowers, its empty spaces and the sparkling sea beyond, is simultaneously transformed into the grave of its lost children and their living and risen body. Zurita's incantatory, unapologetically political work is one of the great prophetic poems of our new century.
