About the Author

Juan Gelman is one of the most-read poets in Argentina, and a noted political activist. Among his most recent awards are the Juan Rulfo Prize, the Pablo Neruda Prize, and the Cervantes Prize. Hardie St. Martin was a master translator. Over his life he translated Pablo Neruda, Luisa Valenzuela, and many other. He also edited the landmark anthology, Roots and Wings.


"A true sense of gravitas is inherent in Gelman's work a sense that he wishes the stories of Argentina told. And he wishes for us to listen. Dark Times Filled With Light is a necessary and essential read, and Juan Gelman is a necessary and essential poet." Lydia Pyne, New Pages "An outstanding body of work that is strongly recommended for personal, community, and academic library Poetry Studies collections, Dark Times Filled With Light will well serve the purpose of introducing an accomplished Spanish poet to an appreciative American readership." The Midwest Book Review"It may come as a surprise that Gelman has yet to receive the attention he deserves in the United States, for he is a world-class poet and great innovator of language, whose poetry not only fits quite naturally in our own literature but also expands its bounds, forcing English to do new things. Indeed, Gelman's poetry in translation extends the range and capacity of our own speech, poetic art, and sensibility." Big Bridge Press Reviews "There is no question that Dark Times Filled with Light is a significant, moving, and beautiful addition to poetry available in English. It is hard to believe how little of Gelman's work is available in the language, given the accolades and recognition he has received the world over." Words Without Borders "In this posthumously realized labor of love by the legendary translator Hardie St. Martin, Gelman's staggering biography, and the poetics he developed to articulate and survive it, are unforgettably translated into beautiful and accessible poems that, taken together, weave a fragile but healing transformation." Barnes and Noble Reviews
