About the Book
With an insightful introduction by Thomas Moore, this volume presents the wisdom and philosophy of one of Spain’s most important poets. Born in 1875, Machado, along with Juan Ramon Jimenez and Miquel de Unamuno, formed the famed "generation of 1898," which ushered in a new Spanish poetics. In this series of brief poems, Machado utilizes traditional Spanish verse forms to create a wide-ranging collection.
"Machado, in these Sappho-like fragments, takes us down not only the road less traveled but the road not seen, where transformation and transfiguration come not from self-made millions but from changing ‘love into theology’"—Thomas Rain Crowe
