Translation of Ave Soul by Peruvian Poet Jorge Pimentel (1944- )

Research, writing, and translating a book of poetry by Peruvian poet Jorge Pimentel (1944- ).

Translation from Spanish into English of a powerful and original book of poetry titled Ave Soul (1973) by Peruvian poet Jorge Pimentel (Lima, 1944- ). A sweeping, lyrical meditation on human bonds in times of tumult, this book is a poetic consideration of the urban experience. Full of insights into Peruvian culture, Ave Soul poses questions and posits answers on the matter of what it means to inhabit a city: to leave it, to return to it, to experience its evolution and contribute to its culture. This translation project includes an introduction of approximately ten-thousand words in length to help the interested English-language reader to situate Pimentel’s work in the traditions to which he belongs, including the neo-avant-garde group known as Hora Zero, of which Pimentel was a co-founder.
