"In the resplendent Revelations, Ruben Quesada grants us a voice that feels both current and ancient. Continuous in its current of devotion, rich in its understanding of the ways we survive both beauty and difficulty, the soft-edged sharpness and sensuality of these poems feel seamlessly at home alongside several of Quesada’s elegant translations of the incomparable Luis Cernuda. ‘Already the jacarandas have started to push their tongues against the window,’ and we as readers are invited to inhabit that space between outside and in—where the best poetry conveys us.” — KHADIJAH QUEEN, author of I’m So Fine: A List of Famous Men & What I Had On
