A lovely collection of emotional and dramatic poetry that deal with love, death, hope and despair, combined with many references to nature and the seasons. I hadn't heard of the revered Rosalia de Castro before, but I enjoyed reading her works.

A very nice collection of poems from the accomplished late author Rosalia de Castro rendered into english by John Howard Reid. I imagine I've heard her name before, but I believe this book was nice to read up on for her poetry as well as a short biography of her life. Very nice... I wish it could have kept going ;)

Thank you for having this in the Goodreads First-Reads Program also and giving me the chance to win and review this copy:)

I am new to Rosalia de Castro and enjoyed John Howard Reid's translation as received through GoodReads. I would like to know more biographical information or see a fictionalized account of her life. Overall, charmed by her words and how after so much time, they resonate today. This is one you will find yourself dipping into over and over.

Sorry, peaches and bros, she was better than Emily Dick... (ー`)y-~~
