With the poems provided in a bilingual format, the collection will be of interest both to English readers in general (this will be the first English translation of a complete RodrÃguez collection not excerpted from a larger work) and to Spanish readers unable to obtain the collection in any form, given the difficulty of distributing Cuban literature outside that country.
As an introduction to the book, Dykstra has included a critical commentary. It clarifies many of the authorâs references, such as details pertaining to her family historyÂitems Dykstra learned during lengthy discussions with the author about her workÂand influences about her choices in the translation.Â
