Overview

Students of Spanish and lovers of poetry will find here an inspiring treasury of forty poems ranging from the time of the Conquest to the first half of the twentieth century. Included are works by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, José Martí, Rubén Darío, Amado Nervo, Gabriela Mistral, Pablo Neruda, and many other poets.
In addition to the original Spanish versions, noted educator Seymour Resnick has provided excellent new literal English translations on the facing pages, along with brief biographical notes on each poet. The result is a rich selection of the finest Spanish-American poetry specially chosen for its quality and enduring popularity. Those studying the language will find here ample material for honing their Spanish-language skills, while any poetry lover will enjoy the richness and beauty of this verse—in English or Spanish.

"Brief volume of selections ranging from colonial period (Ercilla, Sor Juana) to Neruda. Some longer poems are represented by very short excerpts. Poems have been included with pedagogical purposes in mind, as 'popular poems that have endured' that lend themselves to memorization and recitation. Accurate, though uninspired literal translations. En face, with short biographical information on each writer"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
