To Babel And Back

To Babel And Back
Author: Robert Minhinnick

This notebook features partly documentary and partly fictive adventures of the author across Europe, North America and Argentina. In Florence the author follows the traces of Dante and Dylan Thomas in Berlin and seeks a poem gifted to him by a murdered student. The world around is usual but also quaint stuffed with noise of modern society and abundant with silent and sober instants and places. Even when Minhinnick “returns” to his native Wales it seems as wonderful as Babylon which might be a myth or a terrifying reality.

Robert Minhinnick (born 1952) is a Welsh poet, essayist, novelist and translator.

Minhinnick was born in Neath, and now lives in Porthcawl. He studied at University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and University of Wales, Cardiff. An environmental campaigner, he co-founded the charities Friends of the Earth (Cymru) and Sustainable Wales. His work deals with both Welsh and international themes.

He has published seven poetry collections and several volumes of essays. He edited the magazine, Poetry Wales from 1997 until 2008. He has also translated poems from contemporary Welsh poets for an anthology, The Adulterer’s Tongue. His first novel, Sea Holly, was published in autumn 2007.
