Spanish term or phrase: el deseo de arrancar de la condena al despojo
Las páginas del libro construyen dos efectos de intensidad contraria: el primero viene del extremo rigor visual de la fotografías en blanco y negro que sintetizan la dramturgia de la pareja en poses de tal nitidez que la más pequeña torcedura fisonómica adquiere en ella proporciones salvajes, mientras el segundo efecto se debe al rebuscamiento literario de una voz que dota a la locura y al amor de un equivalente (en palabras) tan poco razonable, tan desmedido, como lo urdido por aquellas mentes fuera de control con las que comparte el deseo de arrancar de la condena al despojo.

Explanation:
dispossession.

Thanks... Sorry, I should have given more context, its about a chilean photographer taking pictures of romantic couples in a lunatic asylum (Putaendo) Everyone's help was right on though (and I like the alliteration, which I use a lot to try to get some of Richard's wordplay in the translation. Thanks again.)

the desire to rescue those outcast from condemnation


Explanation:
Hi,

My interpretation is that "despojo" is referring to those portrayed in the pictures of this book, which I'm almost sure is about outcast, marginalized groups.
