Cover of Estar enfermo

(Last Updated On April 3, 2019)

Here’s yet another one of those accidental discoveries, found while searching for something else. The artwork is the cover for a book of poetry called Estar enfermo (Be Sick) by Luna Miguel.  I could not track down the artist’s identity, but there is quite a bit of information out there about Ms. Miguel, a young Spanish poet whose work tends to focus quite literally on the flesh, both its erotic qualities and its infirmities. She was born in 1990 in Madrid, Spain, and has since published several books of poetry, the first of which came out in 2009, when Miguel was only nineteen, as well as a novel intriguingly called El funeral de Lolita (Lolita’s Funeral). You can read a snippet from the book here.

There is also a fascinating interview with the author at this site.

  1. I believe that a more accurate translation of the title would be “to be sick” or “being sick”.
    “Estar” is the infinitive of that verb.
