Hallucinated Horse takes readers on a journey across the vibrant poetic landscapes of the Spanish-speaking Americas. From the desirous unquiet of Javier Norambuena, from whose Humedales the volume takes it title, to the medieval magic of Elena Salamanca, these are poems that fascinate and inspire as they explore the uncanny properties of domestic and psychic spaces. With a captivating cast of obsessive adolescents, synthetic flowers, perverse housewives and mythological figures, Hallucinated Horse presents its English translations facing the Spanish originals, making it a superb tool for language students
