Description

Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Edited and Translated from the Spanish by Marta Lopez-Luaces, Johnny Lorenz, and Edwin M. Lamboy. "The poetic texts chosen and translated here represent a profound transition psychological and political undergone by the new Spanish citizen. This anthology focuses on the poetry written in Spain after 1975. All the poets included were raised under Franco's dictatorship, which lasted forty years. Those born in the sixties or later, such as Ernesto Lopez Garcia and Luis Munoz, lived under the dictatorial regime for less than a decade; consequently, they experienced the dictatorship as a vague memory rather than as a foundation, unlike the older poets. In any case, the social reality after Franco's death in 1975 was very different from that in which all of these poets had been raised. A new conception of the self had to emerge after the transition to democracy, and this was expressed in the work of many poets as a liberating, though painful, transformation, a transformation that affected the very concept of language. Naturally, the radical reinvention of language produced a reinvention of the self." from the introduction by Marta Lopez-Luaces Poetry by Juana Castro, Antonio Colinas, Jenaro Talens, Luis Alberto de Cuenca, Olvido Garcia Valdes, Diego Martinez Torron, Francisco Ruiz Noguera, Jaime Siles, Cesar Antonio Molina, Julia Otxoa, Miguel Casado, Maria Antonia Ortega, Juan Carlos Sunen, Juan Carlos Mestre, Emilio Porta, Tomas Sanchez Santiago, Rodolfo Hasler, Blanca Andreu, Amalia Iglesias Serna, Jorge Riechmann, Marta Lopez-Luaces, Luis Munoz, Jordi Doce, Vicente Luis Mora, and Ernesto Garcia Lopez."show more
