Synopsis

This first bilingual edition of Julia de Burgos' complete poems, more than 200 of them, is a literary landmark--the first time her poems have appeared in a complete edition in either English or Spanish. In fact, some of these poems have been essentially "lost"--tucked away in archives and never before printed in book form. She broke new ground in her poetry by fusing a romantic temperament with keen political insights. This book will be essential reading for lovers of poetry and for feminists.
