1st ed.
This is the first collection in English translation of poems by the 86- year old dean of Puerto Rican poets, Clemente Soto Velez.  These are poems that explore such topics as liberation, solitude, and the 'promised land' - Soto Velez approaches these themes with a firm and precise hand - his explorations are at once intensely personal and universally applicable.  In this bilingual book which offers a selection of his poetry drawn from Soto Velez's published works dating back to 1937, we are given the scope of the poet's life, his struggles and accomplishments.
