About this product
- DescriptionMaking Luis de Gongora's work available to contemporary English-language readers without denying his historical context, Selected Poems of Luis de Gongora presents him as t only one of the greatest and most complex poets of his time, but also the funniest and most charismatic. From longer works, such as The Fable of Polyphemus and Galatea, to shorter ballads, songs, and sonnets, John Dent-Young's free translations capture Gongora's intensely musical voice and transmit the individuality and self-assuredness of the poet. Substantial introductions and extensive tes provide personal and historical context, explain the ubiquitous puns and erotic innuendo, and discuss translation choices. A significant edition of this seminal and challenging poet, Selected Poems of Luis de Gongora will find an eager audience among students of poetry and scholars studying the history and literature of Spain.
