This verse translation of the sonnets of Blas de Otero makes an important contribution to scholarship, given the importance of this post-Civil War poet, one of the first to explore the theme of the desperate (but doomed) search for God, and of brotherhood desperately seeking a voice in a world gone awry. The translation exactly follows Otero's form (usually Petrarchan), and the volume is unique in capturing both scholarly and aesthetic values. Includes an introduction to the essential themes.
