    Cervena Barva Press Announces a New Book
    "Profane Uncertainties"
    by Luis Raúl Calvo
    Translated from the Spanish by Flavia Cosma

    Calvo surveys the world and finds Heaven and Hell located close to home — in our own lives — that is to say, in our relationships to others. This significant poet is here brought home for English readers, thanks to the dexterous and careful translations of Flavia Cosma, a distinguished poet herself — in Romanian and English.
    —George Elliot Clarke, E. J. Pratt Professor of Canadian Literature, University of Toronto

    Luis Raúl Calvo is a profound poet, possessor of a grand lyrical power, preoccupied by the existential limits of the contemporaneous man and by the deepest, implacable layers of his consciousness. All of these are exposed in a concentrated and natural manner, in an original language, with a very personal style which distinguishes this poet from the traditional, run of the mill poetical discourses. Calvo's poetry will never receive the kiss of death, of resignation of enunciation or frivolity, but will soar with the eternal emotion of innocence and dedication.
    —Geo Constantinescu, Professor Spanish Literature, University of Craiova, Romania

    This book was funded by the SUR Translation Program in Buenos Aires, Argentina who awarded the translater, Flavia Cosma and Cervena Barva Press funding for the publication of this book.
