More About This Title Impossible Loves


In this dual language English-Spanish collection, the poems of Dario Jaramillo Agudelo offer a relentless interrogation of time; an ecstatic celebration of life lived, and the melancholy induced by its transience.


Richard Gwyn spent the 1980s travelling, as chronicled in his memoir, The Vagabond’s Breakfast (Wales Book of the Year, 2012). His work as a translator from Spanish includes the widely-acclaimed anthology The Other Tiger: Recent Poetry from Latin America (2016). He is Professor of Creative Writing at Cardiff University.

Dario Jaramillo Agudelo is regarded as one of Colombia’s outstanding contemporary poets and novelists. He has been shortlisted or winner of major awards for his work, and in 2017 he was awarded the Colombian National Poetry Prize for his collection El cuerpo y otra cosa. He lives in Bogota.
