Product Description

Product Description

Master poet Antonio Machado y Ruiz is widely regarded as one of the twentieth-century’s greatest Spanish writers. His collection of poems celebrating the region of Castile made him one of the primary voices of the Generation of 1898 — a brilliant group of writers dedicated to Spain's moral and cultural rebirth after the Spanish-American War. Machado's lyrical Campos poems, tinged with nostalgic melancholy, are powerfully introspective and meditative, revealing an evolution away from his previously ornate, Modernist style. With these magnificent poems, Machado moved toward a simpler, more authentic approach that would later distinguish all of his works.
This unabridged edition of Machado's landmark Campos de Castilla is presented in a dual-language format which features an excellent new translation on pages facing the Spanish original. A fully informative introduction and comprehensive notes by the translator are also included.

5.0 out of 5 stars It all makes sense now 9 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the Spanish version of Campos de Castilla many years ago when doing A level. I want to read it with a sixth form group I teach, as an extra curricular activity. This book will save them hours of trying to translate. They see the English on one side of the double page and the Spanish on the other. The translations are beautiful and do Antonio Machado's poetry justice. I can't wait to read the epic 'La Tierra de Alvargonzález' with my group. Hopefully, they'll compare the Spanish and English and it will improve their language work. It will also teach them about the differences in landscape between Castilla and Andalucía The book is in beautiful condition for a used item. A real bargain. I wish I'd found it years ago.

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely incoherent. 30 Sep 2013
By G. Kilgore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I needed this for a class, so I just grabbed the first version I saw without looking too closely - big mistake. (And in an even bigger mistake, I didn't open it until we reached the Machado portion of the class, meaning it's now too late to return). This book is utterly incoherent, with parts of the English translation randomly interspersed in the Spanish text, and vice-versa. I'm not even sure they're from the same poem in places. What did you people do, scan a side-by-side dual language edition and never look back?

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE! 12 Jan 2013
By hilld - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did anyone at Amazon or Dover check this Kindle version before it was released? It is a disgraceful botch, which has sections of the Spanish original jumbled up with the English translations on the same page. And, believe me, I don't mean the English rendering of the appropriate Spanish passages on the same page -- which would be useful -- I mean non-matching sections on the same page in a way that makes it virtually impossible to fathom (i.e., match up) what English lines and stanzas belong to which Spanish originals. It's as though someone had dropped pages of printed version of the original Dover manuscript on the floor and scooped them together haphazardly. The whole thing is a mess, so much so that I can't even begin to give a calm opinion of the translation.
