Elsa Cross

Last night’s Shearsman reading featuring Mexican poet Elsa Cross (top left) took place across town at Wesminster Kingsway College in the Pimlico area. Cross, whose Selected Poems came out last year read with two of her translators, Anamaria Crowe Serrano (top right) and Ruth Fainlight (below). Tony Frazer read for the translators who were unable to be there. The Shearsman volume is the first substantial collection of Cross’s work in English and focuses on longer poems and serial works.
