Paradise Empty brings together a wide selection of poetry from eleven collections by Hugo Mujica, one of Argentina's most renowned and respected poets. Mujica's work might be described as the poetry of thought. There is nothing superfluous in his poems - his images are crystal clear, his rhythms simple, his language precise - and their impact, in terms of both words and the silences between words, is powerful.
Although his poetry is already well-known throughout South and Central America and in many European countries, Paradise Empty is the first collection of Mujica's work to be published in the UK, and in this beautifully modulated translation by Katherine M. Hedeen and the poet Víctor Rodríguez Núñez, it is sure to resonate with English-language readers.
