Selected Poems
Translated by James Nolan




Press Reviews

“Gil de Biedma’s poetry will probably be the solid residue left after the century burns up. The cottage walls of Spanish culture will fall, the ideological furniture catch fire, the columns melt…. But these poems will remain like paving stones.” - Joan Barril, El país (Madrid)



Quotations

"Original and amazing poems. ‘Pandemic and Celest’ should be as well-known and admired as Walt Whitman’s Calamus.” -Robert Peters
