More About This Title El misterio de las cosas


Clive Wilmer is a rarity in the world of contemporary English-language poetry. The neo-avant-garde air of his writing combines with fragmented images and rational syntax that occasionally gives way to playful experiments with punctuation. In El misterio de las cosas, changes of register abound, leaving constant traces of Wilmer’s journey between the sacred and profane, of the religious and the erotic.


Clive Wilmer is an English poet, translator, and literary critic. He is the author of The Falls, Stigmata, and New & Collected Poems, among other books. He is currently a professor at the University of Cambridge.
