about

Begun in 1939, barely four months after the close of the Spanish Civil War, these poems by the Nobel Laureate poet Vicente Aleixandre were written during a period of hardship and despair. In spite of his surroundings Aleixandre created the splendor of the shadow of a lost paradise that consisted of memory, nostalgia, yearning and illusion. This is the first full English version. The original Spanish text is included.
Vicente Aleixandre (1898-1984) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1977. Hugh A. Harter is Professor Emeritus of Modern Languages at Ohio Wesleyan University.

Editorial Reviews

"Poems like 'The Poet' and 'Body and Soul' ring with a sad beauty that places Aleixandre alongside Antonio Machado and Federico Garcia Lorca as one of Spain's greatest poets."--"The Bloomsbury Review
