The Spanish sonnets of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are among that country's finest literary achievements. This book tells their story. It is an anthology of over a hundred of the best sonnets by the most famous Spanish poets of the period, each accompanied by an accurate translation that brings the original to life as an English sonnet that is an enjoyable poem in its own right.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This eminently readable collection confirms John Rutherford's status as arguably the finest translator of literary works from the Spanish Golden Age. The introduction provides an exemplary contextualisation for a selection of sonnets that are essential reading for anyone who claims an interest not only in Hispanic literature(s) but also in literature per se. A treasure-trove of delights, this collection constitutes a major milestone in and beyond Hispanic Studies.
