La grandeza mexicana | poem by Balbuena |
Balbuena was quite a poet, but his lens was very narrow. Sep 04, Dusty rated kexicana really liked it Recommends it for: For a sixty-page poem written in baroque Spanish four hundred years ago, La Grandeza Mexicana isn’t too unengaging — not that anyone would go through the trouble of finding and reading it for mere enjoyment, anyway.
