María Sanz is a Spanish poet born in Seville, Spain in 1956. Since childhood, she has written about her experiences in her native city. She wrote her first poems at thirteen years of age following the styles of Antonio Machado and Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer. Her style has developed over the years to one which is uniquely her own.
The translated poems included here have been selected from Sanz’s book entitled Lienzos de Cal (Canvas of Lime). Each of the poems pay homage a particular street in Seville.
