John A. Crow, a leading Hispanist, has culled the best translations available–by such poets as Richard Franshawe, Edward Fitzgerald, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant, Robert Southey, and many distinguished modern poets–of poems ranging from the eleventh century to the present to make this the most complete collection of both Spanish and Spanish American poetry in English translation. Represented here is work by such twentieth century poets as Gabriela Mistral, Octavio Paz, Federico García Lorca, César Vallejo, Pablo Neruda, Anotnio Machado, and Juan Ramón Jiménez, many of whom the editor has known personally. The inclusion of many contemporary poets whose verse has never before appeared in English makes this anthology a particularly valuable collection. 

John A. Crow is professor emeritus of Spanish at the University of California, Los Angeles. His numerous books include, among others, Spain: The Root and the Flower, Mexico Today, The Epic of Latin America, Federico García Lorca, and Spanish American Life.
