Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary Spanish Poetry the Generation of 1970
1997 0-7734-8435-3
Following a scholarly introduction by Miguel Casado, the anthology proceeds chronologically with bilingual renditions of several poems by each of these thirty poets who have contributed the most to the forging of the Generation '70. The translations accurately reproduce the spirit of historical rupture, the self-deceptions of postmodern societies, and refreshing testimony of what it means to be living in a post-Franco era away from oppressive cultural forces.
