↪ Look inside!


by Pedro Serrano

Bilingual English / Spanish edition

translated by Anna Crowe
introduced by W. N. Herbert

Part of our Visible Poets series edited by Jean Boase-Beier

These poems are wide ranging and passionate. Linguistically thrilling, they explore the world of snakes, swallows, valleys and skyscrapers, weariness and love. Reading through the eclectic subjects, provokes a sense of searching, a sense of chaos from which ultimately grows a unification of all things, so the dung beetle, scribe and mermaid are all part of one entity. Just as he enjoys presenting both image and concept in his poems, he gives the reader the space in these slowly unraveling poems to immerse fully in his particularly intense worldview.
