Language Notes:

Text: English, Spanish (translation)

From Library Journal:

poetry Known for its vigor and strength as an expression of political and social protest, the poetry of Spain and Spanish America also possesses a generous tradition of love poetry, as reflected in this sampler of love poems from the 13th century to the present. Erotic love, love of brother and sister, filial love, and love between friends are some of the themes explored in these poems. While work from previous centuries is represented, including beautiful anonymous ballads from the 16th century, 20th-century poems by such fine writers as Aleixandre, Borges, Hernandez, Lorca, Mistral, Neruda, Paz, Storni, and Vallejo dominate. A sensual and charming collection, recommended for lovers and foreign language collections. Thom Tammaro, Multidisciplinary Studies Dept., Moorhead State Univ., Minn.
