In The Face of the Quartzes, her twelfth book of poetry and sixth to be translated by Erín Moure, Chus Pato creates a manual for living that is one with birds, with animals, with peaks and trains and lighthouses, and with women who undertake journeys toward life (the improper) and spring (renewal). Her poems acknowledge an unrequitable gift: that of poetry, the language of poetry, the possibility of poetry, its impropriety and its freedom.
