A lyrical, philosophical, and often explicit exploration of personal suffering and the limitations of vision and love, as refracted through the color blue. With Bluets, Maggie Nelson has entered the pantheon of brilliant lyric essayists.
Maggie Nelson is the author of numerous books of poetry and nonfiction, including Something Bright, Then Holes (Soft Skull Press, 2007) and Women, the New York School, and Other True Abstractions (University of Iowa Press, 2007). She lives in Los Angeles and teaches at the California Institute of the Arts.

    💧Soppy

    Me duele felizmente cuando alguien más logra describir aunque sea un poquito los sentimientos para los cuales no tengo palabras. Este libro fue así, me sentí curándome por dentro.

    👍Worth reading

    240 beautiful prose-poems related to the color blue. Some are sort of depressing, others charming and intellectually challenging. I liked it if but I didn't love it!

Quotes

    Alejandra Arévalohas quotedlast year
    Above all, I want to stop missing you.
    Alejandra Arévalohas quotedlast year
    I know that loneliness can produce bolts of hot pain, a pain which, if it stays hot enough for long enough, can begin to simulate, or to provoke—take your pick—an apprehension of the divine.
    Ivana Melgozahas quotedlast year
    237. In any case, I am no longer counting the days.

    238. I want you to know, if you ever read this, there was a time when I would rather have had you by my side than any one of these words
