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 thirtythree 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. 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.

"It is enlightening and refreshing to find poems by poets such as Garcilaso de la Vega and Luis de Camoes along with lesser known, marvelous gems of Catalan and Aljamiado poetry. The selection of texts is unerring, and their coexistence in one single volume is bound to offer the general reader and the specialized student new insight on early modern Iberian poetry." (Joao R. Figueiredo, University of Lisbon)"
