Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rafael Guillén's poems paint vivid portraits of the land and people of his native Andalusia. In sharp-edged words tinged with a certain tender grief, Guillén presents the harshness and beauty of his country-the calm seashore and the violent revolutions, the wheat fields and the famine, the children and the laborers toiling under the oppressive Spanish sun. Behind the colorful imagery and compact language a quiet force builds as Guillén reflects on coming of age during the Spanish Civil War and on love, life, death, and faith in modern-day Granada, Paris, and the United States.

Sandy McKinney, working closely with Guillén, accurately captures the spirit and emotion of this important contemporary Spanish poet.

About the Author

Rafael Guillén was born in Granada, Spain, in 1933 and still calls the city his home. His many books of poetry include La configuración de lo perdido: Antología, 1957-1995, Versos del amor cumplido: Antología 1956-1985, and Los estados transparentes. He is a major "Fifties Generation" poet, and his work has been widely translated. In 1994 he was awarded Spain's National Prize for Literature for Los estados transparentes after having been a finalist for the Critics' Prize.
