Celebrating the Spanish Renaissance's greatest poems,  editor Edith Grossman turns her passionate fervour and stylistic brilliance to the works of:

Jorge Manrique;

Garcilaso de la Vega, a soldier and courtier who wrote love poetry;

Fray Luis de León, a converso Jew;

San Juan de la Cruz, whose poems are the finest exemplars of Christian mysticism;

Luis de Góngora, a great sensualist;

Lope de Vega, Cervantes' rival;

Francisco de Quevedo, the ultimate Baroque poet;

Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, the nun whose haunting poetry embodied the voice of Mexico.

Through these glorious voices, presented in facing-page Spanish and English, this book offers a new way to connect with the literary heritage of the Spanish-speaking world.
