Poetry. Translated from the Spanish by Arturo Mantecón. This is the first Spanish/English edition of the poetry of Francisco Ferrer Lerín. This Anglophone introduction to the world famous poet will prove invaluable to the study of world literature in English.
Francisco Ferrer Lerin was born in Barcelona in 1942. His first book, De las condiciones humanas was published in 1964. His 1971 book La hora oval was a finalist for the Primer Premio Maldoror de poesia judged by Octavio Paz. After this early success Ferrer Lerin did not publish for sixteen years. He worked as an ornithologist and became an expert on Iberian birds of prey. He broke his silence in 1987 with Consul and has continued to publish poetry, novels, and non-fiction. His most recent book, Hiela sangre was published in 2013. CHANCE ENCOUNTERS AND WAKING DREAMS (Editions Michel Eyquem, 2016) is his first volume in English translation.Author City: MADRID SPA
