Quote of the Day
I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

  • Reviews
  • Catalan poet Ernest Farrés was born in Igualada in 1967 and lives in Barcelona. A journalist who works on the cultural supplement of La Vanguardia, he has written three volumes of poems: Clavar-ne una al mall i l'altra a l’enclusa (1996), Mosquits (1998) and Edward Hopper (2006), which won the Englantina d'Or of the Jocs Florals of Barcelona. He has also edited an anthology of contemporary Catalan poetry, 21 poetes del XXI (2001). In Spain Edward Hopper has been adapted to the stage in both Catalan and Spanish. English versions of Farrés's poems have recently appeared in Calque, The Nation, PN Review, Two Lines, Words without Borders, World Literature Today, and Zoland Poetry.
    Praise for Ernest Farres 'The great American painter of solitude comes back to us brilliantly illuminated and transformed by the contemporary Catalan poet Ernest Farrés, who is cannily—cunningly!—translated by Lawrence Venuti into a sparkling English vernacular. This is a book of unexpected splendors'
    Edward Hirsch
