Synopsis

The story of the Marranos (the Jewish converts to

Christianity in Spain and Portugal) has long been a source of fascination for

Jews interested in their heritage and for all those concerned with the struggle

for freedom of conscience against authoritarianism. In this volume are

presented the selected works of three Marrano poets, together with translations

into English and explanatory notes. Each of the three poets is introduced with

a biography and brief critical assessment. In a general introduction the editor

explains the historical and literary background of their works and examines the

inter-relationship between the Jewish and Christian cultural elements. Drawing on a wide range of published and

manuscript sources, he gives a balanced picture of the Marranos and describes

the process of Jewish re-education they had to undergo in order to reach their

goal of integration with authentic Judaism in the Jewish communities outside

the Iberian peninsula.







The three poets-Joao Pinto Delgado, Antonio

Enriquez Gomez, and Miguel de Barrios-are presented against this background as

exemplifying three different 'paths to Judaism', which nonetheless have in

common the dramatic experience of life under the Inquisition and the halfway

house of the Marrano communities. Symbols of exile and insecurity abound. Each

poet shares a sense of guilt over his past observance of Christianity and

endeavours to reach out towards the authentic sources of the Jewish tradition,

such as the Talmud and the rabbinic commentaries, to invest his writings with a

greater cultural depth.







The poems in this volume have been selected with

the aim of giving a representative view of each individual poet's experience

and particular literary talents. Through the translations and notes the general

reader is provided with insight into their significance and purpose. The

specialist reader, too, will gain from finding the writings of three

little-known poets of similar background brought together for the first time

and set in context.
