I have spent the last six months collecting, reading, and translating Spanish poetry. The result of this work is a collection of my favorite Spanish poems. One of the most interesting facts about my “anthology” is the variety within it. The geographic spectrum includes Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Spain. Some poems are a page long, some are sonnets, and a few consist of just two or three lines. Devising a translation process, overcoming a few translation problems, and seeing the final project made my independent study translation project a very rewarding experience. And, as a poet myself, I realized that translating poetry does give a new perspective into an author’s work and ideals, as well as poetry itself.
