This bilingual collection of both Maragall's poetry and prose has been edited and translated by Ronald Puppo, a research fellow and translator at the University of Vic. His keen eye and expertise on Maragall comes across in droves as he takes what are arguably Catalan literature's finest moments and turns them into eminently readable and enjoyable English language poems. Also included in this collection are some of Maragall's pieces of prose work and personal letters that shed light onto the man himself. Accompanying all this are Puppo's own in-depth comments and insights.

“One Day of Life is Life is not only a magnificent starting point to Maragall’s literature for English speakers, but will also no doubt become one of our points of reference for this author. It is an incredibly important book.”—Jordi Llavina, Novel
