Poetry. Edited and translated from the Spanish by Donald Wellman, with an essay by Daniel Aguirre-Oteiza. Bilingual edition. The poetry of DESCRIPTION OF THE LIE (DESCRIPCIÓN DE LA MENTIRA) is rich in imagery drawn from the area of León where Gamoneda has lived most of his life and raised his family. The book presents a unique instance of the local serving as a liberating force, in all its richness and complexity. It embodies a truly national consciousness: loss, despair, compromise and recovery—aspects of Spain's tragic twentieth century history.
