Statman presents the first English translations of the works of a well-known poet of Spain's famed "Generation of '27," which included Pedro Salinas, Rafael Alberti, and Federico García Lorca, among others. Hinojosa's surrealist poetry contrasted with his right-wing politics, causing him to break with the group during the Spanish Republic. He was assassinated by Republican sympathizers in 1936 and his writing disappeared from Spanish culture until the end of the twentieth century.
