A first full UK collection for Josep Lluis Aguilo whose work featured in Arc’s anthology Six Catalan Poets.

Lunarium is Aguilo’s fourth and latest collection, and it takes up his recurring theme of the uncertainty of life. These poems speak in a multiplicity of voices, often from the fantastic surroundings of myths and legends – labyrinths, secret libraries, mirrors, hell and the devil, smugglers, pirates of the Caribbean, palaces with golden pillars, apocalypses – and there is a sense that the poet is constantly pushing the boundaries of the possible in an attempt to explore what it means to live on the edge of his imaginary worlds, at the same time using these ‘other worlds’ to explore our own world and what it means to be human. Aguilo’s language is rich and sensuous, and the beautiful rural and maritime landscapes of the poet’s native Mallorca shine through the fabulous worlds he creates.
