"Originally published as La Universidad Desconocida in 2007 by Anagrama, Barcelona, Spain"--Title page verso.
"Poems which previously appeared in my translations of The Romantic Dogs (New Directions, 2008) and Tres (New Directions, 2011); which were based on the El Acantilado editions; have been edited to reflect differences between those Spanish texts. The section called People Walking Away is a heavily edited version of Antwerp, which has been translated by Natasha Wimmer (New Directions, 2010) ... The edits I have made reflect the differences between the two Spanish versions, but the underlying work is hers"--Translator's note.
