Celebrating the Spanish Renaissance's greatest poems and offering a new appreciation of Spain's "Golden Age," Edith Grossman turns her passionate fervor and stylistic brilliance to the works of Jorge Manrique; Garcilaso de la Vega, a soldier and courtier who wrote love poetry; Fray Luis de Le?n, a converso Jew; San Juan de la Cruz, whose poems are the finest exemplars of Christian mysticism; Luis de G?ngora, a great sensualist; Lope de Vega, Cervantes' rival; Francisco de Quevedo, the ultimate Baroque poet; and Sor Juana In?s de la Cruz, the nun whose haunting poetry embodied the voice of Mexico.

Through these glorious voices, presented in facing-page Spanish and English, The Golden Age offers a new way to connect with the literary heritage of the Spanish-speaking world.
