This anthology is a bold demonstration of the strength of contemporary Spanish culture. It presents a selection of Spanish peninsular poetry from the 1970s to the present day, and is the first work to make poetry of this period available to students of Hispanic literature in the Anglophone world. It includes an introductory study in English of the most relevant poetic trends and groups, and provides guided close readings of each poem, as well as lists of key rhetorical terms, a selected vocabulary and temas de debate y discusion.

The poems by twenty-two different authors are divided into two main sections. The first part deals with poetry written in the twenty or so years that followed the transition to democracy in Spain. It covers topics such as the emergence women writers in the 1980s, and the Spanish poetic field of the 1990s. The second part considers the poetry written and published in Spain during the last two decades, with a particular focus on works produced around the turn of the millennium, and also includes some of the youngest voices in Spanish poetry that have only emerged in the last few years and are still evolving.

Spanish contemporary poetry is an invaluable tool for English-speaking students that will enable them to strengthen and deepen their knowledge of the Spanish language, society and culture, and will familiarise them with the context from which this poetry emerges.
