Fifty Love Poems contains the original Catalan poems with Montserrat Abelló’s own translations into English. It is her first book to be published in English.

Montserrat Abelló (Tarragona, 1918) is a leading contemporary author in Catalonia, both as a poet and translator. Involved in the feminist movements sice the 1970s, she is the author of a number of women anthologies and has translated into Catalan the poetry of Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton and Adrienne Rich, among others. Her poetic voice has been variously described by critics as intimate, suggestive, existential and rebellious. She has been awarded several prestigious literary prizes.

Edited by Ester Pou Jutglar, with an introduction by Helena Buffery.
