Included are some double leaf works, as well as some illustrated by the editorís photographic offerings in Black and White.

John Howard Reidís A Salute to SPANISH POETRY 100 Masterpieces from Spain & Latin America brings the reader an awareness of the works of some of the editorís favorite Romance Language Bards.

Commencing with Adagio, a work rendered by Argentine political idealist Leopoldo Lugones who took his own life in 1938, the reader is presented with an array of odes that inspire, bring a smile and others to stir memories.

Golden Springtime, translated from the Spanish of Nobel Prize recipient for Literature Juan Ramon Jimenez, is filled with the joy of spring and hope despite its setting of a cemetery.

Verses filled with pathos lead the reader to an understanding of the depth of Amor felt in the words of poet Ramon Lopez Velarde, lauded in Mexico as Mexicoís National Poet, as he pens In the Depths of Twilight.

Moving from the depth of love the reader can also find a lament in the words They Tell Me I Must Marry translated from the Castilian of Portuguese lyricist Gil Vicente. The lady is not just having reservations, she is downright frank. They tell me I must marry, but I donít want a husband. No! and she goes on to explain that she likes her life and has no want to be the flower who marries a weed.

And finally Cuban national hero, Jose Marti pens the poignant She Died of Love as a young lady finds she cannot live without the young man who marched off to war. He returned, however, he was not the man who had left.

If you enjoy verses penned with style, wit and delicately wrought verse then you may well enjoy John Howard Reidís A Salute to SPANISH POETRY 100 Masterpieces from Spain & Latin America.

This work is a slim volume of 100 odes spanning nearly 140 pages. Included are some double leaf works, as well as some illustrated by the editorís photographic offerings in Black and White. The stark beauty of the photos illustrate well the at times stark verse.

Following the poetry is a comprehensive Index listing each poet, along with a short biography of his or her life. John Howard Reidís A Salute to SPANISH POETRY 100 Masterpieces from Spain & Latin America is a compilation of a diversity of a group of excellent verse written by Spanish language bards some hailing from Spain and Latin America and others who while not born in the areas noted were fluent in the language.

Included in the listing of Poets are those from Uruguay, Portugal, Peru and Spain as well as Venezuela, Brazil, Cuba and Nicaragua, and finally Bolivia, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, and an American fluent in Spanish. Editor Reid has included the works of men and women, monks and Jewish, young writers and elderly, those who rail again government and those who speak of love.

Poets include Amado Nervo, Antonio Machado, Alfonsina Storni, Andres Bello, Cesar Vallejo, Delmira Agustini, Federico Garcia Lorca, Gil Vicente, Gabriela Mistral, Jose Juan Tablada, Juan Ruiz, Jose Marti, Julio Herrera y Reissig, Jorge Manrique, Joaquin Pasos, Leopoldo Lugones, Luis de Gongora y Argote, Manuel Gonzalez Prada, Miguel de Cervantes, Miguel de Barrios, Miguel de Unamuno, Rosalia de Castro, Ruben Dario and more.

Enjoyed the read, Happy to recommend John Howard Reidís A Salute to SPANISH POETRY 100 Masterpieces from Spain & Latin America.

Another fine review, Molly. I love Spanish and can speak enough to "get by" but certainly I am not fluent. I also love poetry so your review is most ŗ propos. Love and best wishes,

Regis
