Still Life with Loops

Eli Tolaretxipi

Still Life with Loops

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). Although translated into French and Italian, she has had to wait until the publication of this volume for her poetry to appear in English, in a fine translation by Philip Jenkins; Robert Crawford's excellent introduction to this volume helps to set her work in context.

In the Temple of a Patient God

Bejan Matur

In the Temple of a Patient God

"To read Bejan Matur is to walk into a windswept desert strewn with bones and broken bodies and stones stained red by absent gods. Nothing is whole; nothing explains itself; nothing lasts. Horsemen gallop out of the night only to fade into the mountains on the horizon. Gravestones line the roads. Ruined houses howl with wind while shepherds sing dirges about a shattered, scattered tribe left to wander in the dark. It is a haunted, desolate and fragmented landscape in which every stone glows with a grief beyond words..."
