Although published way back in 1965, this book is understandably still a very good seller. There are several excellent reasons for its continued popularity. It is not a heavy book; it is well set out; the brief biographies of the poets are informative without being critical; the translations are both deft and accurate. Of course, they do miss something of the poetry in the original, although even in this aspect, the poems when read aloud in English do come across with reasonable impact. The best way to illustrate a difference in approach is to compare a few lines from "The Bells" by the superb Rosalia with my own version in A Salute To Spanish Poetry: 100 Masterpieces from Spain & Latin America rendered into English verse. Florit's opening stanza is: "I love them, I hear them, / just as I hear the sound of the wind, / the babbling of the fountain / or the bleating of a lamb." I have: "I hear them, I love them / as I hear the rumor of the wind, / the murmur of the fountain / or the bellow of a lamb." My version is actually closer to the Spanish. Rosalia's actual word for instance is "rumor" which means exactly the same in English and is certainly far more poetic than "sound".

I have an extremely high standard for books, no matter the genre. I happen to enjoy reading and writing poetry, and learning language (I am learning conversational Spanish currently)so I decided to buy this one, especially knowing it was from Dover, which I have always believed to have reprinted and published only good books.

I adored this book ever since I read the first poem in here, Cantar de Mio Cid. it really builds on your vocabulary, and helps you grasp the meaning on the words as actual "poetry" and not just as some words in a technical writing.

Among my favorites are: A una estrella (To a star) by Jose de Espronceda, Libro de buen amor (Book of good love) by Juan Ruiz, Castilla (Castile) by Miguel de Unamuno, and Muertes (Deaths) by Pedro Salinas.
This book is not only wonderful for an intermediate beginner like me, but also to advanced learners/speakers to learn both Spanish and English.

A brilliant collection of poetry. This book is a must buy for anybody interested in the Spanish language.

I got this to refresh my memory of Spanish. Not a word-for-word translation and you will need a dictionary if you want to get a better grasp of the words being used, but it was a good study tool and I enjoyed working with it.

A history as well as a sampler. After this I was ready for some more modern samples, but others may wish to further explore the periods and styles represented here.

This book is quite user friendly. I found it really helpful while learning Spanish to be able to read stories side by side with English.

I didn't care for the selection. Maybe it was focused on the wrong vintage of poets. I just couldn't get into it.
My favorite poems.
