San Juan de la Cruz, the 16th-century Spanish mystic, is regarded as one of Spain's finest poets. Passionate, ecstatic and spiritual, his poems are a blend of lyricism and mystical thought. This book presents a translation of the complete poems, with the aim of recreating the religious fervour of St John's work. This dual-language edition provides the original Spanish from the "Codex of Sanlucon de Barrameda", with facing English translations. The work concludes with two essays - a critique of the poetry and a short piece on the Spanish text that appears alongside the translation - as well as brief notes on the individual poems.
