Poetry. Ida Vitale writes poetry that stimulates the mind, the heart and the soul. REASON ENOUGH was originally published in Montevideo in 1972. Translated from the Spanish by Sarah Pollack, this bilingual edition of the poems collected in REASON ENOUGH address many of Vitale's vital concerns: the process of literary creation, the place of poetry in the contemporary world, and humanity's ethical response to nature and history.
