Sonnets of Dark Love

Sonnets of Dark Love

FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA (1898-1936), wrote The Tamarit Diván and the Sonnets of Dark Love in the last years of his life. Both books were published posthumously and explore passionate love. The setting for The Divan is the poet’s Granada, while the Sonnets are a solitary, intimate voice speaking to one person.

In translating these powerful poems, Jane Duran and Gloria Garcia Lorca have tried to remain as close as possible to Lorca’s words and to his emotional and sensuous intensity.

JANE DURAN won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection for Breathe Now, Breathe (Enitharmon, 1995) and a Cholmondeley Award in 2005. Enitharmon has published five collections of her poetry.

An Ounce of Practice

Set between London and Harare in the present day, the novel follows up a group of quasi-revoluntionaries who are fighting against Mugabe’s dictatorship and in favour of Socialist policies. It is a novel about hope, fear and failure, and how fighting for an all-consuming cause can forge some relationships but ruin others.

LEO ZEILIG is a writer and researcher. He has written extensively on African politics and history, including books on working-class struggle and the development of revolutionary movements, and biographies on some of Africa’s most important political thinkers and activities. His critically acclaimed novel Eddie the Kid won the 2014 Creative Work Prize.
