This superb bilingual anthology highlights the posthumous legacy of Pablo Neruda, the great Chilean poet and Nobel laureate, who left a vasty body of unpublished work when he died in 1973.

Poet in New York by Federico García Lorca( Book )
14 editions published between 1955 and 1983 in 3 languages and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written while García Lorca was a student at Columbia University in 1929-30, Poet in New York is one of those rare books that have changed the direction of poetry in both Spain and the Americas. Christopher Maurer has revised this vital work, using previously unavailable or untranslated material. The book includes a prose poem missing from previous editions, as well as extensive notes and letters, revised versions of all the poems, an interpretive lecture by Lorca himself. --Farrar, Straus and Giroux. This symphonic narrative takes Lorca beyond the gypsy-folk lyrics of his early work, and surreally depicts the spiritual emptiness of the urban landscape and the existential loneliness of the poet lost in the materialist city. --Kirkus Reviews. This is a superb translation. Simon and White have succeeded so well that I can't imagine anyone trying to improve on what they've done. --Mark Strand. It does what one wants a translation to do: make the original really come alive in the second language. --W.S. Merwin
