This Donald Wellman translation of Lápidas makes available in English for the first time the poetry of Antonio Gamoneda, recipient of the Cervantes Prize in 2006 and now, despite years of repression under the Franco regime, one of the most respected voices in Spain. American readers will find that Gamoneda’s poetry, beautifully and skillfully rendered in Donald Wellman’s English translation, communicates not only the painful emotions of Franco-era Spain but also the fortitude of the Spanish people in their struggle.
