Vicente Aleixandre

Vicente Aleixandre was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1977, at the age of 79. At the time, his poetry was barely known outside of Spain, and just two small editions were available in American translation. Two years later, Harper & Row brought out Lewis Hyde's bilingual edition of Aleixandre's selected poems, A Longing for the Light. Left to go out of print, Copper Canyon published a paperback edition in 1985. Express Books noted in a article on Aleixandre, "A Longing for the Light remains the only readable collection of Aleixandre's poetry available."
