Does anyone know the title of Whitman's Song of Myself in the Spanish translation, that would be most commonly known to Spanish readers?

I'm translating a title that's playing off of Whitman somewhat, but I need to know what exactly it's playing off of!

Thanks,
Yvette

Hi Yvette,

As far as I'm aware it's "Canto a mí mismo".

Cheers,
Ruth

Borges is one of the most famous 'translators' of Whitman into Spanish and the article discusses his translation decisions (and compares them to others') with respect to this poem you are asking (specifically, about its title).

Hugs,

Au
