Hello Cobblers!

Today we celebrate the birth of the marvelous Mario Benedetti in 1920.

Benedetti isn’t as known in the U.S. as he should be. The quote I chose is a translation of his poem “Esa batalia” or “That Battle”. For a review of Benedetti’s short stories, check out the Three Percent Review from the University of Rochester: “The Rest Is Jungle and Other Stories Review.” 

If any cobblers have anymore articles or translations of Benedetti’s works, please stick them in the comments; I’d greatly appreciate it!
