By Vicent Andrés Estellés

This feature of the verse of Valencian poet Vicent Andres Estelles (1924-1993) is observed by means of a translation into English from the unique Catalan. The structure of an leading edge discussion with classical authors ― a cornerstone of Estellesian expression ― constitutes an inventive invocation and parodic statement at the output and ethos of the Latin poets Horace, Ovid, Virgil and Catullus, the medieval patriarch of Valencian letters Ausiàs March and the Renaissance Castilian poet, Garcilaso de l. a. Vega. For Estellés, Octavian Rome offers a parallel to the Franco dictatorship and the historic framework surrounding those writers offers the neophyte a chance for ideological denunciation, artistic wit and lyrical grace in addition to righteous anger on the oppressive pettiness of lifestyles below autocracy. The translators have tried to convey to an Anglophone readership the wealth of feat of this author who, regardless of the severity of fascist repression, sang and celebrated the adventure of his personal group via its personal oppressed language.
