I love the Spanish poems. Laura Healy, despite the amount of credit she is given for her translations, clearly does not understand Spanish tone, mood, or word play and therefore does not do his beautiful poetry justice. It's not wonder the ratings are as low as they are for this book. If you pick this up in Spanish, enjoy it! If you pick it up in English, put it back on the shelf.
