Review: Six Catalan Poets, ed. Pere Ballart

Anna Crowe (b.1945), the translator here, must be rare as British with fluency in Catalan, and this book is on the whole a fine achievement in making these poems more widely available. Making a positive of what I have wondered about here, I like best the poems that chat, one might say, where the translator catches what one imagines is as close as one might get to hearing the other's voice.
