Trafika Europe 1 - Northern Idyll

The King of Golden Silk (a poem)

Aurélia Lassaque

"Aurélia Lassaque (b. 1983) is a leading contemporary voice in Occitan, a language still thought erroneously by many to have died with the last troubadours of the late thirteenth century. . . [C]ontemporary Occitan literature is still largely a treasure chest awaiting future English translations. . . "Her poetry is characterised by a fascination with human interactions, emotions and the mysteries of the universe, a probing of the possibilities beyond the rituals and repetitions of time and the seasons."

‒ James Thomas
