This 118-page book contains selected poems by Rosalia de Castro (1837-1885), rendered into English verse by John Howard Reid. Some of Rosalia's most famous poems are also presented in their original Castilian so that interested readers can compare de Castro's highly charged thoughts and phrases with Reid's interpretations. It is hoped that Rosalia's unique vision, her firmly feminist outlook and her startling modernity have been well served. Most of the poems in this anthology have been selected from her best and most famous collection, "On the Banks of the River Sar" (1884), published shortly before her death. A few poems have been taken from "La Flor" (1857) and "A mi madre" (1863).
