A Greek Verse for Ophelia & Other Poems - Giovanni Quessep

12.00

A Greek Verse for Ophelia and Other Poems contains one hundred poems taken from renowned Colombian poet Giovanni Quessep’s entire oeuvre, including his last published book of poetry, Abyss Unveiled. The poems contained have been selected by his translators Felipe Botero Quintana, Ranald Barnico and the poet himself to launch the introduction of both the magnificent and exuberant world of his art to English-speaking readers of poetry.  

 This collection is designed to provide its reader with an insight into the wealth and complexity of Colombia’s culture, a country whose history of violence and political corruption has often been over-simplified by the international media, including film and television industries. In the work of one of its finest artists, the English-speaking public will have the opportunity to observe the fine threads that make up Colombian reality through the prism of marvel and incantation evoked by Quessep’s poetry.
