Thursday Fiction Corner: Sierra Nevada, by Tomaž Šalamun

The Fall of Language in the Age of English

Welcome to the Thursday Fiction Corner, where we highlight some of the excellent poetry, drama, and fiction from our list and the lists of our distributed presses. Two weeks ago, the 2015 Best Translated Book Award Poetry Longlist was announced, and Tomaž Šalamun’s wonderful Soy Realidad, translated by Michael Thomas Taren and Šalamun himself, and published by Dalkey Archive Press, was included! Given that April is also National Poetry Month, we thought that it would be doubly appropriate to use this week’s Fiction Corner post to feature “Sierra Nevada,” a poem from Soy Realidad, in honor of the (two) occasions.
