Verse translations of selected works by Ausi's March, the great fifteenth-century Valencian poet.

The Valencian Ausi's March 1400-1459] was one of the greatest poets writing in Europe in the fifteenth century. His work is characterized by a powerful and unique voice and by the constant innovation that allowed him not only todevelop traditional genres, but to compose poems that virtually created genres of their own. This selection includes poems on love, a cycle of six compositions on grief, a long poem on God and predestination, others of praise andvilification, or on philosophical themes.
While March has previously been translated into English prose, this anthology offers translations that, more than an aid to understanding the medieval Catalan, aspire to be poems that can be enjoyed in English without constant reference to the original. The translator has worked for several decades on Ausi's March, and has produced a critical edition and two anthologies, as well as prose translations.
