Translated and Introduced by John Lyons
Though Pluriverse is lamentably not a bilingual edition, the translations by Jonathan Cohen, Mireya Jaimes-Freyre, John Lyons, Thomas Merton, Robert Pring-Mill, Kenneth Rexroth, and Donald D. Walsh give us a cohesive group of mostly translator-poets and mostly repeat Cardenal translators. If only the newest English collection of Cardenal's work The Origin of the Species and Other Poems translated and introduced by the Irish poet-translator John Lyons with a foreword by the American poet and co-founder of the "Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics" Anne Waldman offered us a parallel roadmap. 4. I wanted more from John Lyons' Introduction. Why does he not summarize his translation experience with Cardenal and his work? Lyons translated the massive and significant Cosmic Canticle (Curbstone Press 1989) among many others. Lyons mentions Cosmic Canticle in the opening and describes it as a "masterly four-hundred-page meditation on the origins of the cosmos," which clearly engages with The Origin of the Species, but he does not tell us of his role in both books as the English-language translator. Cardenal's opening poem, also titled "The Origin of the Species" to mark the bicentenary of Darwin's birthday (Lyons tells us in his Introduction), ends:

John Lyons
John Lyons, winner of the WindRush Arts Achiever Award 2003, was born in Trinidad and educated as an artist and art educator at Goldsmiths College and the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne respectively. During those years without a grant he had to work. Some of his part-time jobs included: early morning factory cleaner, evening waiter, postman, and shift-work hospital porter. ohn's writing naturally grew from his addictive reading of novels and poetry at a very early age; this passion continued throughout his art education years. After he won his first Peterloo Poetry Prize he became recognized as a poet. Other major prizes followed. He published four collections and contributed to numerous anthologies; read on radio, television and in many festivals; was part-time creative writing lecturer at Bolton Institute of Higher Education; became an Arvon tutor; was co-founder and director of Hourglass Studio Gallery, promoting the visual arts and Creative writing in the Community.
