In this page I want to show a sampling of the best of Hispanic poetry. The translations were made very carefully with the aim of keeping the soul of the original poems intact. I'm very confident that every one of these translations is the best it can be, but if any blunders are spotted, please don't hesitate, send me an e-mail with details and I'll try to correct the problem. If you are a translator and would like to share your work with the rest of us, please send me some of your translations and, if they fit the site, they will be published. There will be additions to this page regularly, so check back soon.

Enjoy your stay and don't forget to check out my pages of Brief Poetry, mostly sonets by Hispanic writers of today and of times past.

Note:   The term "Spanish Poetry" in this website does not mean "Poetry of Spain"; but, instead it refers to the much broader meaning "Hispanic Poetry".
