Meet the Author

Emilio Lascano Tegui (1887-1966), a self-styled Viscount, is one of the most provocative and singular figures in Argentine literature, making his way through life as a writer, journalist, curator, painter, decorator, diplomat, mechanic, gentleman, orator (known to make incendiary speeches in perfect rhymed verse), and even a dentist. His position as a translator for the International Post Office brought him to Europe, where he began his literary career.

Idra Novey is an award-winning poet and translator. Born in western Pennsylvania, she has since lived in Chile, Brazil, and New York. Her collection Exit, Civilian was selected for the 2011 National Poetry Series. She currently teaches in the Creative Writing Program at Princeton University.

Amazing that these poems have not been translated until now. Fascinating subject matter and lyrical interpretation.
