Return of the River presents a wide selection of Roberto Sosa's poetry in superb translations by JoAnne Engelbert.
Born in Yoro, Honduras in 1930 into a poor family, Roberto Sosa had to struggle hard to gain an education and didn't publish his first book until he was nearly thirty. After he won the Adonais Prize (1969) and the Casa de las Americas Prize (1971), critics recognized him as a major talent.
