Type of Work
Último round (the title translates as Last Round, as in boxing) is a two-volume work by Julio Cortázar published by Siglo XXI Editores in 1969. Containing nearly one hundred articles, essays, poems, short stories, and sketches by Cortázar, it is illustrated with reproductions of various drawings, paintings, and photographs. Portions of the volumes were included in the English-language collection Around the Day in Eighty Worlds. The book invites readers to play across visual and text fragments in the upper floor and the lower floor (a building analogy to refer to the to different sections/volumes of the book) and offers a playful variety of textual and visual pieces.
