'Con las debidas licencias' is the Spanish version of 'imprimatur' or 'nihil obstat,' the Latin used for books published under Catholic censorship. In Spanish, the title plays with the semiotic richness of the word 'license,' meaning 'liberty of action conceded' and 'abuse of freedom.' The poems of With Leave and License strike the imagination with tenderness and nostalgia, powerful in this intelligent vision of life considered as an irreversible journey.
