The poetic movement that was Spanish American modernismo ran from the early 1880s to 1916: it expressed the desire both to join universal literature--aesthetic modernity--and to break colonial ties with Spanish belles lettres. The new translations in this bilingual anthology, many of them first translations, present eighteen modernista poets from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and Uruguay. This volume in the MLA series Texts and Translations is designed to provide the student of Spanish American literature with work not easily accessible in Spanish and English and to introduce modernismo, an often misunderstood movement, to a wider audience.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An Anthology of Spanish American Modernismo contains a stimulating introduction, a wealth of bibliographic information, and a generous sampling of modernista poetry. This collection of some of Spanish America's best poetry makes for an excellent reference work and is ideal for university courses." --George Antony Thomas, University of Nevada, Reno


"I was struck by how moving some of the translations are. These are among the very best translations of poetry from Spanish to English. This volume will be a wonderful contribution to the conversations among those who read and study both Spanish and English." --Gwen Kirkpatrick, Georgetown University
