This option of the verse of Valencian poet Vicent Andres Estelles (1924-1993) is followed by way of a translation into English from the unique Catalan. The structure of an cutting edge discussion with classical authors — a cornerstone of Estellesian expression — constitutes an creative invocation and parodic observation at the output and ethos of the Latin poets Horace, Ovid, Virgil and Catullus, the medieval patriarch of Valencian letters Ausiàs March and the Renaissance Castilian poet, Garcilaso de los angeles Vega. For Estellés, Octavian Rome offers a parallel to the Franco dictatorship and the old framework surrounding those writers gives the neophyte a chance for ideological denunciation, artistic wit and lyrical grace in addition to righteous anger on the oppressive pettiness of lifestyles less than autocracy. The translators have tried to convey to an Anglophone readership the wealth of accomplishment of this author who, regardless of the severity of fascist repression, sang and celebrated the event of his personal neighborhood via its personal oppressed language.

More recently, the Acadèmia Valenciana de la Llengua, a body established in 1998 by the Generalitat for the defence and promotion of the autochthonous language and culture, declared 2013 as the Any Estellés (Year Estellés). It is to be hoped that this celebration, as we approach the ninetieth anniversary of the writer’s birth, may indicate a thaw in the official treatment of this magnificent poet and serve as a catalyst for a more widespread institutional appreciation of his crucial contribution to the creative profile of Valencia in particular and the Catalan-speaking areas in general at a critical time during the last century.

But how will it be read by them on the other side of the Ebro or on the other side of the ocean? 15 Though one can appreciate Fuster’s concern for his friend’s contribution attracting appropriate recognition – especially given the widespread ignorance of their community and its history – it is also plain to see that he is worrying perhaps more than is necessary. First of all the Valencian dialect presents little or no difficulty to the Catalan speaker and is certainly nowhere near as complex as, say, Burns or MacDiarmid for the non-Scottish reader of English.

160–179. Estellés: the voice of a people the contemporaneous Battle of Valencia which pitted the centralist obsession of recalcitrant Francoism against the progressive national consciousness of radical Catalanism. ’ Though the process differs from classical schizophrenia as, unlike Norman Bates or Mr Hyde the alternative personality remains firmly in the ego and retains a correspondingly benevolent profile, the strategy still succeeds in an enhancement of the viscerality of the reaction of the non-native reader.
