"The great Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño liked to argue, plausibly enough, that poetry is a higher calling than fiction.
His collected verse, now in a plump, handsome bilingual volume called The Unknown University, has flecks of the intense pleasures contained in his best novels: The Savage Detectives (1998), By Night in Chile (2000) and 2666 (2004). But you will need to pan for these, like someone searching for gold in a river bottom.
— Dwight Garner, The New York Times
