This collection of Neruda's most essential poems will prove indispensable. Selected by a team of poets and prominent Neruda scholars in both Chile and the U.S., this is a definitive selection that draws from the entire breadth and width of Neruda's various styles and themes. An impressive group of translators that includes Alastair Reid, Stephen Mitchell, Robert Hass, Stephen Kessler and Jack Hirschman, have come together to revisit or completely retranslate the poems; and a handful of previously untranslated works are included as well. This selection sets the standard for a general, high--quality introduction to Neruda's complete oeuvre.
Pablo Neruda was born in Chile in 1904. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.

About the Author:

Pablo Neruda is regarded as the greatest Latin American poet of the 20th century. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1971, his breadth of vision and wide range of themes are extraordinary, and his work continues to inspire new generations of readers and writers. Mark Eisner is the book's editor and one of its principal translators. He has backpacked and worked throughout Latin America from Cuba to Chile. Some of this book developed while Mark was a Visiting Scholar at Stanford University's Center for Latin American Studies, where he had earlier earned a masters. He is the founder of Red Poppy, a non-profit dedicated to promoting the power of Latin American poetry: the power to evoke emotions and foster social consciousness. He is currently finishing both a documentary and a biography on Neruda.

Prefatory Note by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

There have been many Pablos in history, and Pablo Neruda is one to exceed Picasso in the prolific production of great works, as well as in the depths of his proletarian empathies.

I met this Pablo in the Hotel Havana Libre (once the Havana Hilton) in 1959 in the first days of revolutionary euphoria, and that night he spoke his poetry to several thousands of multi-ethnic Fidelistas (still in combat clothes) in the great government hall where the late dictator had held forth. His rapport with the masses was evident in every poem he spoke (with standing ovations), just as poems in this book speak to us all, Spanish-speaking or not.

Neruda had told me before the reading, "I love your wide-open poetry" — by which he meant, I believe, the poetry of the Beat Generation that we had published in San Francisco and some of which had been published in translation in Lunes de Revolución (the Monday literary supplement to the big daily).

And I answered, "You opened the door." I hope this edition will open the door for the greater American public (who needs these messages).

Lawrence Ferlinghetti San Francisco, January 2004

Book Description City Lights Books, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Bilingual. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. No other edition exists like this one -- other selections are idiosyncratic based upon the translator s preferences, or they select from Neruda s themes/styles, such as the Collected Odes or Love Poems, etc. Ben Bellitt s collection is the only one that comes close, and the translations are widely considered to be awful. These are new translations by some of the most prominent translators of Latin American writing, and includes some previously untranslated works considered by scholars to be some of Neruda s most imortant. Neruda is one of the most popular and beloved poets of all time -- this will become a must-have for anyone being introduced to his work. Seller Inventory # AAS9780872864283
