Aleixandre, Vicente (Robert G. Mowry, trans. and illus.)
Destruction or Love
Associated University Presses, London, 2000.
Quarto; hardcover; 274pp. with many monochrome illustrations. Dustwrapper. Remainder. New. With the publication of 'La destruccion o el amour' in 1935, Aleixandre established himself as one of Spain's most original and promising younger poets. A friend of Lorca and Bunuel, he early became imbued with the spirit of the surrealist movement and cultivated it in most of his mature work. This is considered his masterpiece and one of of the most intense works of all 20th-century Hispanic poetry.

Brock, Geoffrey (ed.)
The FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Italian Poetry: An Anthology
Farrar, Straus & Giroux, New York NY, 2012.
First edition: octavo; hardcover; 672pp., bilingual text (English & Italian). Dustwrapper. Remainder. New. More than a century has passed since F.T. Marinetti's "Futurist Manifesto" slammed the door on the nineteenth century and trumpeted the arrival of modernity. Since then, against the backdrop of two world wars and many social upheavals, Italian poets have explored the possibilities of verse in a modern age, creating one of the great bodies of twentieth-century poetry. Even before Marinetti, poets such as Giovanni Pascoli had begun to clear the weedy rhetoric and withered diction from the once-glorious but by then decadent grounds of Italian poetry. And their winter labours led to an extraordinary spring: Giuseppe Ungaretti's wartime distillations and Eugenio Montale's "astringent music"; Umberto Saba's song of himself and Salvatore Quasimodo's hermetic involutions. After World War II, new generations including such marvellously diverse poets as Sandro Penna, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Amelia Rosselli, Vittorio Sereni, and Raffaello Baldini extended the promise of the prewar era into our time. Surprising and illuminating, The FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Italian Poetry invites the reader to examine the works of these and other poets, seventy-three in all.
