The Golden Age: Poems of the Spanish Renaissanceby Edith Grossman (Translator), Billy Collins (Introduction)
The Spanish Renaissance-a period of glory that endured from the late fifteenth through the seventeenth century-comes to life in its greatest poems. With passionate fervor and a stylistic brilliance, renowned translator Edith Grossman presents here the great masters of Spanish poetry, including Jorge Manrique, Garcilaso de la Vega, Luis de Gongora, and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, the nun whose haunting poetry embodied the voice of Mexico.
