Jorge Guillen, one of the greatest poets of the Generation of ’27, went into voluntary exile during the Spanish Civil War, and spent many years in the US and Latin America.

While some poems in Horses in the Air were written in America, many of them had never been translated into English before. Guillen’s view of Europe from the New World, his experience as an exile and an immigrant, as well as his encounters with Spanish America provide insights into our shared culture that are fresh and relevant today.
