Description

    • Imported from USA.
    Poetry. Edited and translated from the Spanish by Forrest Gander. Previously published by Shearsman Books in 2013, the poets featured in this revised and expanded edition are Antonio Gamoneda, Olvido García Valdés, Miguel Casado, Marcos Canteli, Sandra Santana, Benito del Pliego, Julia Piera, Ana Gorría, Pilar Fraile Amador, Esther Ramón, and J.M. Antolín. "This bilingual selection... introduces a limited group of little-known contemporary Spanish poets to American readers interested in innovative writing beyond debates about official and non-official verse cultures. Furthermore, it is an invitation to leave the comfort zone of literary histories; it affords an alternative view of domestic poetic discourses of any persuasion. Beyond personal preferences, the discursive displacement specific to translation alters the all-too-familiar either/or debates dominating national poetry scenes. In this light, PANIC CURE may contribute to opening up the largely inbred industry of modern Spanish poetry, if only because its readers will be hard put to consider it yet another attempt at settling family quarrels."—Daniel Aguirre-Oteiza
