April is ! We wanted to celebrate by sharing a few examples of Spanish poetry from our Department of Manuscripts and Rare Books.
In this picture you can see a dedicated English translation of "Poeta en Nueva York" by Federico García Lorca. As well as a letter to our founder Archer M. Huntington from Juan Ramón Jiménez and a handwritten text by Rubén Darío.
Poetry was a big part of Archer M. Huntington's lifelong interest in Hispanic culture, amassing a world-class collection of books and writing poetry himself. He even declared: "If I can make a poem of a museum, it will be easy to read.”
Who is your favorite Spanish-speaking poet?
