QuotationI have received the package of your two latest books [Las puertas del pasatiempo and El poema cotidiano, both published in 1967] and I am especially enchanted by your beautiful dedication. I have read with much pleasure these two books, especially because I believe that the idea of poetic autobiography is a very beautiful one. I assure you of my esteem and my friendship always very cordially, and I greet your estimable sister with much respect.
