About the author (1999)

Alan Yates, born in Northampton in 1944, is Emeritus Professor of Catalan at Sheffield University where he worked for 30 years, after graduation (1966) and then a Ph.D. (1971) from Cambridge. His teaching and research straddled the fields of the language and the modern literature of the Catalan-speaking lands. He has published several books and numerous articles in these fields, now keeping a foot in both by devoting himself to literary translation. The rest of his time is devoted to mountaineering and nostalgic fell-running.
