The Valencian Ausias March [1400-1459] was one of the greatest poets writing in Europe in the fifteenth century. His work is characterized by a powerful and unique voice and by the constant innovation that allowed him not only to develop traditional genres, but to compose poems that virtually created genres of their own. This selection includes poems on love, a cycle of six compositions on grief, a long poem on God and predestination, others of praise and vilification, or on philosophical themes. While March has previously been translated into English prose, this anthology offers translations that, more than an aid to understanding the medieval Catalan, aspire to be poems that can be enjoyed in English without constant reference to the original. The translator has worked for several decades on Ausias March, and has produced a critical edition and two anthologies, as well as prose translations. ROBERT ARCHER holds the Cervantes Chair of Spanish at King's College London. Published in association with Editorial Barcino

MEDIA REVIEWS
I can think of no better introduction to Ausias March for English-speaking readers than this anthology. ENCOMIA This attractive-looking book has been well edited and nicely placed on the page. The book has all the requisite qualities to attract more Anglophone readers to what is over-neglected poetry. [...] It is a model of what a poetic translation of a medieval poet can look and sound like today. MEDIUM AEVUM
