Víctor Rodríguez Núñez

The Infinite's Ash

Víctor Rodríguez Núñez is one of today's most outstanding Cuban writers, although he has lived and worked outside of the island for nearly two decades, first in Nicaragua and Colombia and, since 1995, in the USA. The present collection, based on his selected poems With a Strange Scent of World: First Anthology, 1978-1998 (Havana, 2004), offers a representative sample, as well as a rewriting, of his early poetic work, full of vivid images from the poet's youth and of both rural and urban Cuba.

Still Life with Loops

Eli Tolaretxipi

Born in San Sebastian, and still living and working there, the Basque poet Eli Tolaretxipi has published two collections of poetry in Spanish Amor muerto naturaleza muerta (Past Love Still Life) and Los lazos del numero (The Loops of the Figure).
