"Oscar Hahn has been hailed by postmodernist master Enrique Lihn as ""the premier poet of his generation."" Pablo Neruda has praised Hahn's ""great originality and intensity,"" and Mario Vargas Llosa has called Hahn's work ""magnificent and truly original. . . . the most personal I've read in the poetry of our language in a long time."" Stolen Verses and Other Poems, translated by Poet Laureate of Texas James Hoggard, affirms Hahn's reputation as a master of his craft.

""Octavio Paz once remarked that in Chile there is a poet under every rock. On rare occasions one of these poets emerges from beneath a very strange-looking boulder indeed, with the power and talent to affect a generation. Hahn's new book--ably translated by Hoggard--seems to be the work of such a genius."" --Kirkus Reviews

""A powerful and beautiful collection."" --Booklist"
