Salinas! Salinas! My kingdom for a book of Salinas's poems in English translation!

I'll throw in my brother's kingdom too for a bilingual edition!

Re: the nerve you have..

Um, you weren't supposed to see that. Um.

Okay, okay, I'll offer both of my kingdoms, on earth and in heaven, for the bilingual edition. Gimme!

Let's see just how serious you are (no realm required)

I just might be in a position to make good on this particular request, but as I'm presently rather limited in computer access thus not up for much e-searching, I'll ask you to fill in more details -- the more, the better. Having been previously entirely unaware of the existence of poet Pedro Salinas, whether in the original (Spanish? which??) or in xlation (by whom, if you have a preference?), I'll return la pelota to your court.

Note: this offer good only for the next 7 days, and the sooner the better; we board our return flight (LAX-TLV) on August 28, midday PDT.

Re: Let's see just how serious you are (no realm required)

Hey, Deb! Good to hear from you.

It'd be wondrous if you can get your paws on a Salinas book for me. Here are titles I've been able to discover on the net, all hopelessly out of print:

- My Voice Because Of You / Pedro Salinas (tr. William Barnstone)
- Prelude to Pleasure: A Bilingual edition of Vâispera del gozo / Pedro Salinas (tr. Noel Valid)
- To Live in Pronouns / Pedro Salinas (tr. Edith Helman & Norma Farber)
- Truth of Two / Pedro Salinas
- Certain Chance / Pedro Salinas (tr. David Lee Garrison)
- ZERO / Pedro Salinas (not sure that this one's in English)

Any (and as many) of these you can grab for me would be very welcome. I'll reimburse you, of course. Thanks!
