In this new collection of poems Xavier Panadès I Blas confronts the issues of human loneliness, social injustice, war, domestic abuse and the destruction of the natural world. Sometimes with humour, often with anger, The Eye of Reality tells us some uncomfortable truths about the human condition.
The Catalan poems are accompanied by translations into English.
