An Anthology of the Spanish Sonnet in English Verse Translation
|Author: ||Cobb, Carl, compiler and translator|
Volume One contains facing-page translations of 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.
