John Dent-Young, author of definitive translations of both Góngora and Garcilaso de la Vega, lays bare the authentic message of this brilliant and rewarding poet. "Góngora is the Spanish baroque poet par excellence. His works reach dazzling rhetorical and linguistic heights. Góngora captured what he saw and perceived and then added verbal flourishes that make the world the micocosm and the word the macrocosm....Gifted and daring, Dent-Young attempts to produce translations that could stand on their own and that give Góngora 'a human voice.'"—Choice
