    San Juan de la Cruz (English: St. John of the Cross), born Juan de Yepes Álvarez, was a major Counter-Reformation figure, a Spanish mystic, Catholic saint, Carmelite friar and was a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered, along with St Teresa of Ávila, as a founder of the Discalced Carmelites/5(). century.

The Indonesian translations of the works of Alfredo Pérez Alencart, Elena Liliana Popescu, Fray Luis de León, Juan Cameron, and Ramón Hernández-Larrea have been included in multilingual anthologies.

      It's good to see a substantial selection of his poetry in Spanish in accessible form. The English translations, however, are inept almost beyond belief. What the reader with some Spanish needs is a careful and competent trot, as in the wonderful "Penguin Book of Spanish Verse," where the translator gets every s: 7.   This poem is often accompanied by a fairly fearsome image of a tiger stalking through the long grass, presumably hunting for prey. A bit like Shere Khan in Kipling’s Jungle Book, the original rather than the Disneyfied, not-so-fearsome version. The Tyger. Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forest of the night, What immortal hand or eye.
