About this product
- DescriptionPablo Valdivia's debut collection, Respirar bajo el agua (Breathing Underwater), stands as a conversation between a young man and the world around him. It is a collection tinged with aching stalgia -- an emotion intensified by the often sterile images inspired by the Swedish and English backdrops in many of its poems. Fittingly, Valdivia borrows a line from Natalia Ginzburg to begin one section: England is beautiful and melancholic . And, with this epigraph, he succinctly describes his own poems; they are beautiful and melancholic.
- Author BiographyPablo Valdivia is Assistant Professor in Spanish Literature at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. His poetry has been published in Spain over the course of the last decade, initially in Spanish literary magazines such as Letra Clara and Imaginando, as well as the national newspaper El Pais. In 2004, a selection of seven poems was included in an anthology of young Andalusian poets, Poesia por venir (Poetry to Come), published by Editorial Renacimiento. Valdivia's first collection of poetry, Respirar bajo el agua (Breathing Underwater), was published in 2008 by Editorial Alhulia. His second collection, La velocidad de la niebla (The Speed of Mist), appeared in late 2011. In addition to his poetic output Valdivia has published critical work on Federico Garcia Lorca, including the book La vereda indecisa: El viaje hacia la literatura de Federico Garcia Lorca (Granada: Diputacion de Granada, 2010). His latest work is a critical edition of the novel Sefarad by the award-winning Spanish author Antonio Munoz Molina.
