About the Author
Hans Faverey (1933-1990) was born in Paramaribo, Surinam and moved to Amsterdam when he was a child. He worked as a clinical psychologist at the University of Leiden and received many literary awards, including the Constantijn Huygens Prize for his work as a whole.
Francis R. Jones lectures in English and applied linguistics at the University of Newcastle. Among his other translations are Ivan V. Lalic's The Works of Love, The Passionate Measure (for which he was awarded the 1991 European Poetry Translation Prize), and The Rusty Needle; Vyacheslav Kupriyanov's In Anyone's Tongue; and Vosko Popa's Complete Poems (with the late Anne Pennington).
Eliot Weinberger is an essayist, editor, and translator. He lives in New York City.
"Hans Faverey made his reputation only gradually.... He is a poet of losses and silences, of meditations on change and how change either undermines or strengthens our sense of reality."
