Wild Creature

Wild Creature was published by Bloodaxe in November 2021 and launched both on-line and later at the Spanish Embassy in London, in the presence of Joan’s grandson and the Spanish poet, Luís García Montero. I am grateful to the Instituto Cervantes for their financial support. The book contains translations of Joan Margarit’s last two collections.

Joan Margarit

All through 2020, the great Catalan poet and I were working on his fourth and last collection for Bloodaxe, Wild Creature. Although he was battling with lymphoma he continued to send his comments and suggestions, and we were able to finish the book just two weeks before he died.

Publication is expected in November 2021.
