ONE DAY IN THE SECRET FOREST OF WORDS 
Vicente Valero
Translated by Richard Sturgess

“This writing offers an animism that refuses animism, a humanism that refuses humanism, a spirituality that rejects the self-preening moral high ground — but also an astonishment that refuses any limitations on the realm of astonishment.” Leonard Schwartz, author of IF (Talisman House)

VICENTE VALERO (Ibiza, 1963). With six poetry collections, Valero is established as one of the foremost poets of his generation, present in the most essential anthologies of Spanish poetry of the last decades. Días del bosque / One Day in the Secret Forest of Words received the International Poetry Prize from the Loewe Foundation in 2007.
