With its lens on Europe and taking a singular approach, this collection of poems translates and revises the works of both famous and rising poets. From Akhmatova, Baudelaire, and Pasolini to the Olafsson brothers, Renée Vivien, and Yulia Zhadovskaya, poets from various European nations are not only brought together in the book but are celebrated in it for their differences and a shared poetic purpose. Award-winning poet John Gallas collaborated with native speakers to translate the works and then incorporated his artistic edge into their interpretation. Covering all of human life in the subjects, including love and despair, wild excess and wistful calm, this exhilarating poetic journey travels across a continent as well as through time.
