Goat Star Books is an independent publishing house that specialises in poetry translations to and from English. We aim to act as a bridge between cultures and we believe that the translator´s work is like that of a medium, a go-between and an intercessor.
Goat Star books wishes to act as a transmission belt, a gardener that picks up someone else's flowers and transplants them into a different, foreign soil, hoping that they take root and grow.
We are a publishing house committed to poetry as a way of exploring the relationship between the arts and social, political, and economic aspects.
Following Percy Bysshe Shelley's famous dictum, Goat Star Books believes that poets are the unacknowledged legislators in the world.
