Recommends it for: mystics and poetry lovers
Antonio Machado is a Castillian Spanish poet from the last century. I find myself transfixed by the ordinary in reading his poetry--I guess that's part of being a mystic. I highly recommend!

I like a lot of these, but there are too many elegies to a landscape for my taste. It's a plus to see the Spanish and English versions together. (My translation differed on occasion.) Lovely for reading aloud.

This is Trueblood's translation. While other of his work is excellent, this version of Machado is not.
