Poetry. Translated from the Spanish by Michael Smith. THE PRISON POEMS is the first complete translation into English of Miguel Hernandez's Cancionero y romancero de ausencias, a classic of twentieth century Spanish poetry, comparable in many respects to the work of Lorca and Pablo Neruda. The poems in this book were mostly written while Hernandez was in prison after the defeat of Republican Spain. Although he was totally involved in the Republican cause, its defeat did not lead to bitterness on his part. The poems are profoundly human, rising beyond political ideology, constantly striving toward a redemptive vision of the human condition.
