Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (18071882). Complete Poetical Works. 1893.
From the Spanish. From the Cancioneros. I. Eyes so tristful, eyes so tristful
The main repository of these poems is Ochoas Tesoro de los Romanceros y Cancioneros Españoles, Paris, 1838. See also Antológia Española. Mr. Longfellow published his translations in the volume entitled Aftermath, 1873. His acquaintance with these Spanish popular songs was an early one, for there is an entry in his journal, when at Dresden, February 1, 1829: At the Public Library in the morning till one oclock. Found a very curious old Spanish book, treating of the troubadour poetry of Spain, entitled the Cancionero General.
