Poets represented : Caks, Grots, Grigulis, Saulitis, Vacietis, Ziedonis, Auzins, Livzemnieks, Caklais. Ruth Spiers has translated here 98 poems ---- They read quite well in English but the problem arises when the translations are compared to their originals. But on the whole, she has efectively entered into the spirit of the poems, the rythms, attitudes and meanings ---- but there are places where the translations do not correspond with the originals because the meaning has had to suffer on account of the rythms, metrics, rymes - the extent to which meaning takes second place to technique is a discussion all of its own" (P. Krumins)
