The poem turns into a domain that prepares the prospect for a go back via figures from the prior, specifically, and importantly, Gelman’s son, as during this instance: smooth Argentine Poetry (Revised). indd eighty 05/05/2011 10:08 Juan Gelman eighty one El poema Entra como un ladrón, roba desastres, se lleva calles donde morí, lo que ha fingido ser en una estación sin viaje, guarida de los besos caídos. [. . . ] Todo lo que hace mal en él canta. Esta noche. Hijo, podés venir.  (2004: forty two) The poem Enters like a thief, robs failures, includes off streets the place I died, what’s feigned to be in a journeyless station, hideout for fallen kisses. [. . . ] every thing that does incorrect in it sings. this night. Son, you could come. The poem is a computing device which could flip evil into paintings – for that reason, track – yet, extra importantly, it varieties a situation for the go back of his son; that which was once misplaced enjoys, within the poem, an area within which to reappear: Gelman writes his son’s go back from the useless, or, as John Berger observes, ‘It is a poetry during which the martyred get back to proportion the discomfort of the bereaved’ (1998: 27).
