Joan Margarit was born in the La Segarra region, in Catalonia. He first published poetry in Spanish, but after four books decided to write in Catalan. In 2008 he received the Premio Nacional de Poesía del Estado Español, Spain’s highest literary award. Love Is a Place (Bloodaxe, 2016) is the third translation by Anna Crowe, and includes all the poems from three Catalan collections: No era lluny ni difícil (It Wasn’t Far Away or Difficult, 2010), Es perd el senyal (The Signal Is Fading, 2012) and Estimar és un lloc (From Where to Begin to Love Again, 2014).
