In this anthology, Vincent Barletta, Mark L. Bajus, and Cici Malik treat the Iberian lyric in the late Middle Ages and early modernity as a deeply multilingual, transnational genre that needs to break away from the old essentialist ideas about language, geography, and identity in order to be understood properly. More and more, scholars and students are recognizing the limitations of single-language, nationalist, and period-bound canons and are looking for different ways to approach the study of literature. The Iberian Peninsula is an excellent site for this approach, where the history and politics of the region, along with its creative literature, need to be read and studied together with the way the works were composed by poets and eventually consumed by readers.
 
With a generous selection of more than one hundred poems from thirty-three poets, Dreams of Waking is unique in its coverage of the three main languages—Catalan, Portuguese, and Spanish—and lyrical styles employed by peninsular poets. It contains new translations of canonical poems but also translations of many poems that have never before been edited or translated. Brief headnotes provide essential details of the poets’ lives, and a general introduction by the volume editors shows how the poems and languages fruitfully intersect. With helpful annotations to the poetry, as well as a selected bibliography containing the most important editions and translations from all three of the main Iberian languages, this volume will be an indispensable tool for both specialists and students in comparative literature.

George D. Greenia, College of William & Mary | Speculum
“The Spanish, Catalan, and Portuguese lyrics gathered here demonstrate an exacting level of craft and formal perfection.”
João R. Figueiredo, University of Lisbon
“In Dreams of Waking Barletta, Bajus, and Malik put forth a successful experiment in comparative literature. This is a cosmopolitan anthology, as literary history and subject matter yield to the rich variety of linguistic, cultural, and political realities in the Iberian Peninsula that inspire and resist each other in unexpected, creatively tense ways. It is enlightening and refreshing to find poems by poets such as Garcilaso de la Vega and Luís de Camões along with lesser known, marvelous gems of Catalan and Aljamiado poetry. The selection of texts is unerring, and their coexistence in a single volume is bound to offer the general reader and the specialized student new insight into early modern Iberian poetry.”
