Crimson Pashmina is a bilingual English-Spanish edition of a collection of poems by Danial Andrew Danish, a young  Pakistani poet with a strong social conscience. This is his first published collection. Through Danial’s voice, this bilingual edition  wishes to offer a glimpse of some aspects of Pakistan as experienced by one of its young citizens. Also, we would like readers to discover the rich tradition of Punjab, reflecting on the universal character of both that tradition and of Danial’s words, and to compare and consider how his poetry may relate to their own traditions, how the poet’s voice accords with their own. the books comes with a prologue placing Danial´s poetry in the context of the history of Punjabi poetry.
