Wrenched from civilization and its attendant madness, the desolate hero is transported into a natural world that is at once menacing and sublime.In this stunning edition, Edith Grossman, our most celebrated translator from Spanish, captures the breathtaking beauty of a work that represents one of the high points of poetic achievement in any language.
