An Anthology of the Spanish Sonnet in English Verse Translation, Volume One: The Golden Age
|Author: ||Cobb, Carl|
Volume One contains the sonnets of the golden Age, roughly the years from 1492-1681. During this period the poetry of courtly love and neo-Platonic vision prevailed, as represented by Garcilaso de la Vega and Quevedo. The poets are listed chronologically by date of birth. More than 140 poets are represented by at least one sonnet and sometimes more, in Volume One alone. The next two volumes will cover the periods from 1700-1915 and 1915-present.
