William Shakespeare Soneto CXXVII
Traducido al Castellano por Santiago Sevilla
In old age black was not counted fair,Or if it were, it bore not beauty¶s name;But now is black beauty¶s successive heir,And beauty slander¶d with a bastard shame:For since each hand hath put on nature¶s power,Fairing the foul with art¶s false borrow¶d face,Sweet beauty hath no name, no holy bower,But is profan¶d, if not lives in disgrace.Therefore my misstress¶ eyes are raven black,Her eyes so suited, and they mourners seem,At such who, not born fair, no beauty lack,Sland¶ring creation with false esteem.Yet so they mourn, becoming of their woe,That every tongue says beauty should look so.

This is agreat sonnet against racism, and prejudice, in times when beeing white was privilege. The quality of the poem is superb. No translation is good enough. La traducción de este gran soneto no alcanza a repetir la insuperable idea planteada por Shakespeare. Por eso es bueno leerlo en ambos idiomas, Inglés y Castellano.
