Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


Legacies is the author's own selection from his work, and represents the many facets of Padilla's art: his lyrical love poems, his almost Audenesque meditations on other poets, his deceptively simple verses about history.

This edition presents the English translations and original Spanish poems side by side on facing pages.
