4 poemes de Juli Capilla




Transnational Literature, the Australian online literary journal, has published my English translations of four poems by Valencian poet Juli Capilla in its latest release, Volume 5, Issue 2. The four poems (‘La collita’, ‘La sang’, ‘L’infant etern’ and ‘Mort’) belong to his award-winning book Raspall.

At a time when the Catalan language is suffering a constant, virulent, vicious attack from both state and regional political institutions, it is for me a pleasure to divulge a small example of Catalan-language literature in Australia, even if it is in a very modest format. I'm also thrilled to be able to give a little publicity to the achievements of a young poet, who works very hard in his various roles as a high-school teacher, as an author (he has just published a little book for younger readers about the old train that used to join Gandia and Alcoi, Un tren de llegenda, el Txitxarra) and as a person who has been seriously committed to Catalan letters for such a long time.

The four translations are preceded by a very brief introduction. You can read it online or download the PDF from the Transnational Literature website.
