Poems for Spain

Genre:

Language:

Editor:

John Lehmann

Publisher:

Poems written and translated by English writers about the Spanish Civil War. Auden is among them and the poems are generally of a high quality. The justification for the book is that 'Poets and poetry have played a considerable part in the Spanish War, because to many people the struggle of the Republicans has seemed a struggle for the conditions without which the writing and reading poetry are almost impossible in modern society' (7).
