From Library Journal:

In The Separate Rose , written near the end of his life, the Chilean Nobel Laureate attempts to unravel both the ancient silence and mystery of Easter Island (which he visited in 1971) and the human condition of his contemporary world. Yet like the island stones themselves, these mysteries are impenetrable: ``O separate rose . . . alone in your lonesome dynasty,/ still unattainable, elusive, desolate/ like one drop, like one grape, like the sea.'' The preface offers a brief history of the islands and discusses Neruda's interest in and visit to them. Art of Birds is one of Neruda's most spirited collections, and this first English edition of his 1966 book is complemented with bold, playful drawings. For Neruda, ``birds and flight'' were metaphors of the human spirit's potential, often never realized. Neruda is primarily known as a writer of social and political protest; this collection shows why he is more than that, why he is a great poet. In language rich and lyrical, Neruda shows his love for the natural world in its beauty, grace, and mystery: ``a people's poet . . . bird by bird I've come to know the earth . . . because I received those wings in my soul.'' Both collections are welcome additions to the growing canon of Neruda's work now available in English. Thom Tammaro, Multidisciplinary Studies Dept., Moorhead State Univ., Minn.
