Selected Poems of Salvador EspriuBook - 1989
One of Spain's great twentieth-century poets, who spent his life in the pursuit of the hard prize of a few bare words, Salvador Espriu viewed his nine major books of poetry as a single meditation on the tragedy of war. In his spare, rarely rhymed verse, the simplest words are burnished to an elemental power: the words of landscape, the elements, death itself.
