Each poem is also accompanied by an English version, translated by some of the language’s luminaries, including Ezra Pound, Denise Levertov and William Carlos Williams, to name a few. Filled with page after page of expressions of sensual devotion and erotic lust, this sweet little anthology would make the perfect gift for the one you love.
