Love Poems from Spain and Spanish America

Edited by Perry Higman
Translated by Perry Higman


The nearly seventy poems in this bilingual anthology are concerned with many kinds of love: erotic love, sublime love, filial love, maternal love, and love between brother and sister. They also explore feelings of friendship, solidarity, and the altruistic love of all mankind. Ranging in time from the 13th century to the present day, these poems come from diverse traditions and countries-Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, and Uruguay. The volume includes a concise biographical sketch of each of the poets.
