This stunning bilingual collection contains poems of passion, longing, and wonder by some of the greatest poets ever to write in the Spanish language, including Pablo Neruda, Josefina de la Torre, Gaston Baquero, Luis Cernuda, Jorge Carrera Andrade, Mario Benedetti, Angela Figura Ayamerich, Jose Maria Zonta, and many others. The poems bristle with images of extraordinary power and invention, captured perfectly with the lush darkness and verbal acceleration at the cetner of the Spanish literary tradition.

Carlos Reyes has published seven collections of poems, most recently Pomegranate, Sister of the Heart, and six collections of translations from the Spanish.
