              Espectros Y Sombras / Ghosts and Shadows (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Translated by Castillo, Sergio Badilla; Hickin, Roger

              Badilla practises a poetic transrealism , where the poem --an arena in which reality and myth, certainty and uncertainty merge, where dimensions alter and multiply, and where the poetic facts can inhabit several temporalities at once-- is a shamanistic revelation of the chaos at ...the heart of things. This bi-lingual selection includes a number of poems from a recent visit to India.

Badilla practises a poetic transrealism , where the poem - an arena in which reality and myth, certainty and uncertainty merge, where dimensions alter and multiply, and where the po...etic facts can inhabit several temporalities at once - is a shamanistic revelation of the chaos at the heart of things. Sergio Badilla Castillo, poet, narrator, translator, journalist, university teacher, son of a sailor, was born in Valparaiso, Chile in 1947. Like his contemporary Juan Cameron, during the Pinochet dictatorship, he spent twenty years in exile in Sweden, travelling throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, returning to Chile in 1993. He now lives in Santiago.

              Blanca Castelln (b.1958) is a celebrated Nicaraguan poet whose books include Ama del espritu (1995), Flotaciones (1998), Orilla opuesta (2000) and Los juegos de Elisa (2005). Blanca Castellns poetry, in Roger Hickins impeccable translation, possesses the great virtues of sass...iness and surprise. It is full of trees with secret holes through which she slips into her own unique Wonderland where she is both Alice and the Queen of Hearts pulling an ace from her sleeve with a quiet flourish that turns everything upside down. Cactus Body is a small door which opens on to the world of wonder and beauty of an exceptional poet. Gioconda Belli Blanca Castellns poetry is both as light as foam and as sharp as a cut-throat razor. Rogelio Guedea Blanca Castelln strikes me as poet nicely attuned to the sensibilities of how the heart knows more than all else the head may get up to in making poems. It is the sometimes ex-centric curves of her imagination, and the striking images that show more than they appear to say. It is most often, in this selection, the resonances of the pitch of language that go beyond mere invention to the deeper poetic reach of discovery. This is an excellent match of poet and translator: Roger Hickins translations are clearly the work of a poet-translator who is nicely attuned to the thought-music of the originals, able to articulate the tensions inherent in a poetry that is willing to take risks with feeling in search of a language, and (always a distinctive mark of a translator wholeheartedly engaged with the language and the culture of the language) he very wisely doesn't get in the way of the originals. As pote interprte, he gives us poems in English that stand strongly in their own right. Michael Harlow Roger Hickin is a New Zealand poet, translator and visual artist, and editor of Cold Hub Press.
