The Poetry of Julia Uceda

Translated, with an Introduction by Noël Valis


Noël Valis

A contemporary of 1950s poets Angel González, Gloria Fuertes, and Claudio Rodríguez, Julia Uceda is an original and intensely visionary poetic voice of today's Spain. This is poetry with a metaphysical, existential edge and a harsh honesty. Her writing reflects a private struggle with the largest question of all, the question of Being. This selection of her poetry is intended as a representative sampling from all her published work, including the 1994 Del camino de humo. This is the first book-length translation of Julia Uceda's poetry.
