Alberti, a friend of Lorca's is now in exile, living in Argentina. It is hard to present an important poet in a brief selection, but Mr. Mallan has made an excellent choice of significant poems from different phases of Alberti's evolution.His early lyrics, his poems in surrealist vein, his great elegy for the de ath of the bullfighter Ignacio Sanchez Mejias, and finally poems inspired by the Spanish Civil War are all represented here. To them Mr. Mallan has prefaced a brief but revelatory account of Alberti's work." - from the front flap.

ALLAN, Peter John. The Poetical Remains of Peter John Allan, Esq., Late of Fredericton, New Brunswick. With a Short Biographical Notice. Edited by theRev. Henry Christmas. London : Smith, Elder, & Co., MDCCCLIII [1853]. Firs t Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xxiv,[1]-171,(1). 8vo, maroon pressed cloth, gilt lettering to spine. TPL 5364. "Peter John Allan (June 6, 1825 October 21, 1848) was a Canadian poet. Peter John Allan was born in York, England, the third son of Dr. Colin Allan and Jane Gibbon. Peter John Allan's father was Chief Medical Officer at Halifax before moving to Fredericton in 1836 upon his retirement. Growing up in Fredericton, Peter John briefly attended King's College but left before completing his degree. He then turned to the study of law. About the same time, he began to publish his compositions in the New Brunswick Reporter and Fredericton Advertiser, a local newspaper published by James Hogg. Allan began to plan the publication of a volume of poetry. He solicited enough subscriptions to underwrite the cost of publication and had completed the manuscript when he died suddenly in 1848 at Fredericton, following a brief illness. His poems were posthumously published in London in the summer of 1853 by his brother, and entitled The Poetical Remainsof Peter John Allan. Influenced by the aesthetic concepts of the Romantic poets and especially by the style and versification of Lord Byron, Allan was able in his most effective poetry to break away from the moralistic attitudes and sentimental tone that had prevailed in locally written verse sincethe end of the 18th century. Allan was excited by the potential of man's i magination, by the range of experience that imagination offered to human consciousness, and by the relationship between the natural world and ideal reality, which only the imagination opened to human awareness. In his best poems, Allan used this intense sensitivity to ideal reality to control the rush of emotion he felt when confronted with the sensual beauty of nature. This control gave an intellectual toughness to his verse that was missing in the verses of contemporary Maritime poets such as Joseph Howe and Mary JaneKatzmann, who approached nature poetry by way of sentimentalism. The new n ote struck by Allan's verse was probably noticed by few. It had an immediate if muted effect on James Hogg's poetry, but it was not until the early verses of Charles G.D. Roberts and Bliss Carman that once again intellectual perception and emotional sensitivity were to be found in so subtle a balance in the poetry of Maritime Canada." - from wikipedia.
