Review: Six Catalan Poets, ed. Pere Ballart

Stride Magazine August 2013

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.
