The work Poesies is a collection of poems written by the folklorist and catalan poet Pau Bertran i Bros (1853-1891), who won several poetry prizes, which include a second prize in Viola d’Or i d’Argent dels Jocs Florals de Barcelona in 1884 and la Flor Natural dels Jocs Florals in 1885. This is a posthumous edition published 25 years after his death and includes poems that Bertran i Bros had published during his life in various newspapers and magazines - including La Renaixensa, the first magazine that published his work-.
Most of the work had been written during the age of twenty and we can appreciate his enthusiasm and catalan irony, lacking the bitterness and disappointments that characterized his later years of life. We can also appreciate some folklorist influence and the beauty in the style and images that embodied his work.
In addition, the publication includes an obituary study and notes of the poet and political activist Joseph Gomis and candor.
