Kathleen Weaver’s debut book of poems is Too Much Happens. Alissa Valles says, “The poems in this book move simultaneously toward clarity and compassion, traveling through geological time to achieve a perspective in which the contemporary world’s cruelties and depredations can be faced, free of rhetoric and posturing, with an ascetic, often witty justice.” A translator, biographer, and editor as well as a poet, Kathleen Weaver’s books include Where the island Sleeps Like a Wing: Selected Poetry, by Nancy Morejón; Nicaraguan Sketches, by Julio Cortázar; and Fire from the Mountain: The Making of a Sandinista, by Omar Cabezas—all translations from the Spanish—and the biography with poetry translations Peruvian Rebel: The World of Magda Portal. She has also co-edited The Other Voice: Twentieth Century Women Poets in Translation and Penguin Book of Women Poets.
