Love Hound by Oliver Welden

Regular price $8.00

Translated by Dave Oliphant

Chilean poet Oliver Welden's volume Love Hound, written over 30 years ago and highly praised at the time, disappeared during the brutal dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet and has recently resurfaced with power and artistry undamaged by the passage of time. Opening with spare meditations on solitude, suicide and murder,  the volume ends in a powerful evocation of the erotic. This bilingual collection offers an emotional landscape rarely seen in poetry.

Neruda is always seen as a peak obscuring everything below, but along come renovating poets, like Oliver Welden: his poems are cellars, reminiscent of Chardin, holding a tense, dark tragedy.
