Review: Peatlands, by Pedro Serrano

Pedro Serrano is an exquisite poet, and this is a collection that sings with virtuosic touches - Serrano's verse itself, the work of the translator and the scope of the Arc Visible Poets series, which profiles both poet and translator. Parallel text editions are such a pleasure, even if one does not read the original language - to gain a sense of the interplay between Anna Crowe's sensitive translations and Serrano's Spanish originals adds a vitality and intellectual excitement to the reading of the collection. Arc are to be congratulated.
