The New Schools
In ancient Greece
by Roque Dalton
Aristotle taught philosophy to his disciples
while they walked across a large courtyard.
Because of this his school was called "the peripatetic."
are peripateticker than those Aristotelian peripatetics
because we apprehend the philosophy and poetry of the people
through the cities and mountains of our land.
Translated from the Spanish by Jack Hirschman.
