“Spanish poetry in the twentieth century uniquely combines both primitive and sophisticated elements. It is as firmly rooted in folksongs and ballads as it is in wild surrealist imagery. The brilliant personalism and imaginative grace of Machado, Jimenez and Unamuno, the dazzling intensity of Lorca, the sweetness of Felipe, the disciplined fury of Hernandez—these represent a cultural force which has decisively influenced world literature. Hardie St. Martin’s collection is a landmark anthology.”—Kirkus Reviews
