Summary

En estos poemas, una mujer pasea por el malecón de La Habana que se adentra en el luto de un amor perdido; un poeta se sienta bajo la sombra de un árbol y medita acerca de la duración de las cosas; una madre escucha a sus hijos y trata de responder sus dudas, de atesorar sus palabras que iluminan el mundo, al tiempo que se deja sorprender por el milagro de la comunión con quienes más ama. Solastalgia encierra entre sus páginas un camino para adentrarse en el paisaje y la naturaleza. Estos poemas acomodan la contemplación e intentan el imposible medir la distancia que hay entre el cielo y la tierra, o tal vez solo habitarla, para dar cuenta de ese territorio; Al mismo tiempo, aspirar a entender, un puente con el ecosistema, con sus misterios profundos, con la forma en que nos deparan ciertos mensajes que se traducen en vuelos de pájaros, en el silencio de las rocas, en el movimiento perpetuo del mar.

    Theatre Royal. The very name summons up something of grandeur and eloquence. And it was. Hosted by Laurence Olivier, these big-name productions also included the creme de la creme of acting talents from John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, and Orson Welles to Trevor Howard, Michael Redgrave, and Olivier himself. They were based on works by the worlds’ leading authors, among them Charles Dickens, Henry James, Oscar Wilde, and Anton Chekhov.  These are but a few of whose company we shall be keeping as we raise the curtain on our first installment of theatrical history.

    ACT I  
    Scene 1. The ghost of Old Hamlet, King of Denmark, has appeared to officers guarding the castle of  
    Elsinore. When the apparition is witnessed by Horatio, friend of the dead king’s son, he fears that it  
    portends ill. He decides to tell young Hamlet, hoping that the ghost might reveal to him the cause of  
    its restlessness.  
    Scene 2. The dead king’s brother, Claudius, has assumed the crown and married the widowed Queen  
    Gertrude. He dispatches emissaries to Norway where the king’s nephew Fortinbras is threatening  
    Denmark with war. The King and Queen urge young Hamlet to cast off his dark mood. Once alone,  
    the prince vents his violent grief at his father’s death and outrage at his mother’s “incestuous”  
    remarriage. When Horatio tells Hamlet about the ghost he too suspects foul play.  
    Scene 3. Laertes warns his sister Ophelia not to take seriously Hamlet’s attentions because, being a  
    prince, he is not free to make his own choices in matters of love.  
    Scene 4. Hamlet and Horatio meet on the battlements. The ghost appears and beckons to Hamlet to  
    follow him.  
    Scene 5. The ghost describes to Hamlet how it was murdered by Claudius. It urges him to revenge the  
    crime.

    The acclaimed Scottish poet’s debut collection shares poems “so physical you can almost touch the images in them. Fabulously sensual and alive.” (Stephen Fry). Writer and performer Michael Pederson has built a reputation as a critically acclaimed poet-provocateur. His live readings are as memorable as they are witty, laced with an electric energy, as he recites his accessible yet deeply layered poetry from memory. From NHS overdose clinics to overrun gardens, talking Cambodian treehouses to the teenage perversion of a young Scot on a French Exchange, the poems in Pedersen’s first collection offer a rich and fantastical feast of flavors, landscapes and language. On the menu is everything from iced oysters and chateaubriand to pickled onions and Buckfast-soaked bread sticks.
