Six Galician Poets
Published by Arc Publications
Featuring the work of six poets – Chus Pato, María do Cebreiro, Yolanda Castaño, Xosé María Álvarez Cáccamo, Daniel Salgado and Estevo Creus – this anthology aims to give a flavour of some of today’s most significant poetry written in Galician. Three of them, Pato, Cáccamo and Creus, have already made a name for themselves as poets whose new work is often groundbreaking, always exciting. The other three poets, although younger, have distinguished themselves by winning some important literary prizes, as well as the respect of their peers. The combination of poets of different generations in this anthology is particularly apt in that it reflects the Galician preference for literary collaboration, and here we can see not only a mutual influence but a sharing of common concerns.
