Latin America, colored by extremes of climate and temperament, scarred by conquest and revolution, has inspired more than four hundred years of poetry that is among the most powerful and imaginative ever written. This bilingual anthology offers a rich sampling of the poetry of Spanish-speaking Latin America from pre-Columbian cultures to the present. The selections, newly translated by Cheli Duran, include folk poetry as well as works by Ruben Dario, Gabriela Mistral, Cesar Vallejo, Octavio Paz and Pablo Neruda, plus some lesser-known poets from South and Central America and the Caribbean.
