Daybook 1918: Early Fragments, J.V. Foix (Northwestern University Press)
Translated from the Catalan by Lawrence Venuti
This first substantial selection in English from the prose poetry of influential Catalan writer J.V. Foix features a core of 45 prose poems from the beginning of Foix’s career, interspersed with additional literary works. Readers are immersed in the experimental nature of these works, which provide a valuable glimpse into the world of Catalonian revolutionary politics in the era preceding Franco’s dictatorship.
