Recital of the Dark Verses by Luis Felipe Fabre, translated by Heather Cleary

A darkly entertaining tale, Recital of the Dark Verses takes notes from Cervantes and Dumas and the absurdity of Shakespeare’s comedic mishaps, and never ceases to surprise in gruesome, cadaverous humor. With naive thieves, a perfume-scented corpse, and the many forms of the devil/trickster at play, we traverse the Spanish landscape on the backs of donkeys while debating whether verses written by St. John of the Cross were ecstatically written for God or for an illicit lover. Delight yourself in this playful but wise comedy of errors.
