Overview

Josep Carner's NabĂ­' is a masterpiece of modern Catalan poetry. Based on the biblical story of Jonah, it is essentially a Christian poem, though it is scathing about the effects of religious perversion. In the widest sense a poem about the limits of rationality, it is a triumph of language - of a language which Carner helped to establish as a vehicle for serious poetry. This bilingual edition is introduced by the noted Catalan expert Arthur Terry.

Josep Carner (1884-1970) was one of the leading members of a brilliant generation of Catalan poets. His work extends from the early years of the century to the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War.

J.L. Gili (1907-1998) was born in Barcelona and lived in England from 1934. A scholar, translator, publisher and bookseller, Joan Gili ran the Dolphin Book Company in Oxford for many years, and was well known as the translator of Lorca's Selected Poems' (Penguin).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
First writing during the unrest and activism of early 20th-century Catalonia, Josep Carner (1884-1970) was later pressed into government service but continued to write poetry, becoming a model for younger Catalan poets. His book-length poem Nabi (Hebrew for "prophet"), published in Buenos Aires in 1941, now appears in an English/Spanish edition, translated by J.L. Gili (1907-1998). Based on the biblical story of Jonah, this deeply religious poem explores the complexities of faith, dogma, uncertainty and forgiveness through the experience of a prophet who, "recalcitrant,/ and still confused," talks back to God: "Neither Your threats frighten nor Your comfort revives,/ and You appear less resolute,/ like one that wanting to sell a rug/ brings down the price." Carner imagines Jonah's dialogue with Jehovah throughout his travails, and his internal transition: "in the belly of a fish, I have faith.// ...I felt sheltered like an unborn child." An introduction by Arthur Terry provides a fascinating background for this rich work. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
