Bilingual Catalan/English edition.

In this first Selection of Clementina Arderiu’s work to be published in English, we encounter a woman Catalan poet who is both classic and startlingly modern. This Selection reflects Arderiu’s unique blend of ‘domestic’ themes and imagery that displays an intensity both passionate and transcendent, informed by a restrained but persuasive feminism. Over a span of more than five decades her poems speak of hope, motherhood, war and sheer resilience, as well as the conflicting impulses of her ‘compound heart’.
