New books in translation by F. G. Lorca and Michael Augustin

The Dedalus Press continues its commitment to the finest poetry from around the world in English translation with the publication of two new titles: Mickle Makes Muckle by German poet Michael Augustin presents a selection of the poet's poems, mini plays and short prose, in version by renowned Indian poet Sujata Bhatt which brilliantly preserve the wit and wisdom of the originals; while the reissue of Michael Smith's dazzling version of Lorca's Diván del Tamarit (The Tamarit Poems) is now complemented by the translator's rendering of 36 poems from Arabic Andalusia.
