The radical, French Romantic poet finds his ideal translators in Gallas and Gänzl, bringing this important poet to the attention of a modern audience.
Praise for John Gallas 'John Gallas is not merely a lyric master, but a master of meaning... The Extasie is a collection that I feel I will be coming back to frequently, not just to recapture the enjoyment I had when first reading it, but also to fully bathe in the complex understanding of love in all its forms, rendered so skilfully in poems that reward a second reading with subtle epiphanies.'
Ed Bedford, Coffee Time Reviews
'This is a book for contemplative reading to enjoy all its richness and subtleties. Quietly thought provoking and intelligent, these are poems that celebrate the messiness of life.'
- Mary Mulholland, The Alchemy Spoon
'An enticing and timely collection of translations.'
- The Guardian
