This 118-page book contains selected poems by Rosalia de Castro (1837-1885), rendered into English verse by John Howard Reid. Some of Rosalia's most famous poems are also presented in their original Castilian so that interested readers can compare de Castro's highly charged thoughts and phrases with Reid's interpretations. It is hoped that Rosalia's unique vision, her firmly feminist outlook and her startling modernity have been well served. Most of the poems in this anthology have been selected from her best and most famous collection, "On the Banks of the River Sar" (1884), published shortly before her death. A few poems have been taken from "La Flor" (1857) and "A mi madre" (1863).

A very nice collection of poems from the accomplished late author Rosalia de Castro rendered into english by John Howard Reid. I imagine I've heard her name before, but I believe this book was nice to read up on for her poetry as well as a short biography of her life. Very nice... I wish it could have kept going ;) Thank you for having this in a giveaway program also and giving me the chance to win and review this copy:)
