    About The Book

    Ana Enriqueta Teran is arguably Venezuela’s finest poet. Celebrated throughout the Spanish-speaking world, she is almost unknown among anglophones. Until now only a handful of her poems have been translated into English, giving at best a diluted impression of a uniquely intense imagination.

    This bilingual edition reveals the power and beauty of this poet’s Spanish poems through English versions of corresponding force. It invites readers to enter Teran’s world — a world at once strongly Venezuelan and universally human, imbued with great beauty, sardonic humor, pitiless compassion, lucid wisdom, and joyful affirmation.

    Selected from several volumes of Teran’s work, these poems span half a century of composition and show an extraordinary range in both form and substance. Some are written in closed forms, some in free verse. Some are carefully evocative representations of the landscapes and cityscapes that have nourished the poet’s intelligence and imagination. Others are dramatic character studies. All are infused with Teran’s rare sensibility and realized through language that manages to be at once graceful, urgent, and explosive. This volume is a treasure for all lovers of poetry.

    Deal Struck with Happiness

    How much sweetness to make right the night

    and this clutch of anemones

    near thin smooth consoling stones,

    stones havens of southern weather.

    Of a woman who watches Cepheids quaver

    among lightbursting mangroves.

    Of a woman who offers cats-eyes and clematis

    only, Islands, for the sake of setting right

    her deal struck with happiness.
