With a confident and pleasant style, the celebrated Mexican novelist and playwright Hugo Hiriart offers a double introduction to poetry and to the Spanish language, addressed in principle to students of Spanish, but which may be enjoyed by all for its freshness, vigor and easily worn erudition. The guide uses key examples to examine poetic meter, rime, genres and themes, culminating with several chapters dedicated to awakening a taste for poetic writing in the reader. The book includes a bilingual dictionary interspersed within the text for English-speaking students With this volume, Hiriart has created an indispensable guide for North American libraries and bookstores.
