He has published, among many others, the volumes of poetry Tríptic hebreu (Hebrew Triptych, La Magrana, 2002), El centre del temps (The Centre of Time, Edicions 62, 2003) and Els immortals (The Immortals, 3i4, 2006), which shares tenderness, dreams and oblivion as central themes.

His poetry frequently engages in dialogue with other arts by means of his collaboration with painters, sculptors and photographers such as Antonio Hervás and Manlio Masu, Guido Dettoni, Manuel Cusachs, Kim Castells, and singers such as Dounia Hédreville and Josep Tero. Recently, he published S’acosta el mar (3 i 4, 2010).

With regard to his poetry, Marie-Claire Zimmermann writes: “The Duartian poetic ‘I’ is thought of as a unit: a body of flesh indeed which celebrates all forms of physical pleasure – sensorial, sensual and sexual – but which experiences all its sensations through the imagination, through the conscience, without ever forgetting that its place is the universe that precedes it and survives it”.
