Resumen:   Antoni Pous, poet and translator, is a monographic study on Antoni Pous i Argila (Manlleu, 1932 -- Barcelona, 1976), the cultural activist and man of letters who distinguished himself from an early age as a highly gifted poet, during the immediate post-war period; who in the 1960s developed an important cultural and pedagogical work in Igualada, while founding the group Lacetània and creating the magazine Textos; who since 1968 decisively encouraged the studies of Catalan language and literature in the German-speaking world, first in Tübingen and then in Zürich; and who finally, thanks to his translations, introduced to the Catalan literary world the work of two classical authors from the XXth century: Walter Benjamin and Paul Celan.
This thesis is divided into four main parts: the first with the title "The Man", reconstructs Pous' biography based on his own writings, many of them still unpublished, as well as on the testimony of those who knew him personally, using both correspondence and the taped interviews especially made for the present work; the second part, called "The Thought", analyses the prose by Pous, both published and unpublished, in order to outline his ideas about religion, philosophy, politics and literature; the third part, called "The Poetry", collects and comments upon his poetic work, for the most part unpublished, describing the evolution from his first period, influenced by Carles Riba, to the hermetism of his last phase, under the influence of Paul Celan, through his social poetry from the late 1960s; finally, the fourth part is called "The Translations", which catalogues and analyzes the versions made by Pous of poetic, theological and philosophical texts into Catalan, particularly from the German, focusing mainly on his own selection of texts by Walter Benjamin and Paul Celan, the first translations ever made into Catalan, as well as his versions of XXth century Catalan poetry into German, in collaboration with Johannes Hösle.
Besides being the first exhaustive study on this figure, up till now practically unknown in our literature, Antoni Pous, poet and translator also provides first-hand, scarcely studied data on different aspects of Catalan literature and culture in the third quarter of the XXth century, as the formation of the so called "Vic Group" and the relationship this group had, through Joan Triadú, with Carles Riba, or the friendship between Antoni Pous, Miquel Martí i Pol and Jordi Sarsanedas, which was one of fruitful and mutual influence.
