Book Overview

This bilingual collection of Neruda's most essential poems is 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 Alistair 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.

.The Essential Neruda will prove to be, for most readers, the best introduction to Neruda available in English. In fact, I can think of few other books that have given me so much delight so easily. --The Austin Chronicle

This book is a must-have for any reader interested in a definitive sampling of the most essential poems by one whom many consider one of the best poets of the 20th century.--Mike Nobles, Tulsa World

   Best of the Best of Neruda and Amazing Translations
Where to begin? This book bar far exceeded my expectations. I used to live in Chile, graduated high school there and then went on to college, taking classes in Spanish. I've had the honor of working with Pablo Neruda and he's my favorite of all time. The translations are spot on, and the story is told with great compassion. I mean, seriously, what a magical world! The selections of Neruda's works truly represent the essential poems - especially if you are trying to familiarize yourself with his works. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. A must-have for any Neruda enthusiast, or for those just getting acquainted.
   Beautiful, Sensual and a wonderful selection of Nerudas best!!!!!!
Pablo Neruda was one of the 20th century's greatest poets. As a native speaker of Spanish, I can say that these are some of the better translations of his work and this volume does an excellent job of cherrypicking many of his best poems.
   The edited anthology features excellent and varied translators of Pablo Neruda's most important poetry.

   Great Collection
A great collection of Neruda poems.
Note the subheading of this terrible parable in the "Persuasion" series, "The writer who changed our views of love and language." Aqui a vez o seus dos ltimos.
   Powerful, seductive, and erotic poetry | A Must-Have
Do you have some passion or zest for your romance? Get this book and let it inspire you to love and be loved, Cheri said.
   Passionate poetry
I bought this for my lover on Valentine's Day. The poems stay with you long after you put down the book.
   Good for bilinguals who need to learn more vocabulary.
My first language is English and my second is Spanish. It is written in a way that makes it comfortable whether you are speaking a foreign language or not. I also love the poetry because it evokes beautiful feelings, he said. This book is a great read, Levine said. It is a useful tool for those who learn a language and it simply is a good read.
   An excellent collection of Pablo Neruda's poems
If you enjoy Pablo Neruda's poetry, and don't have a book like this, I highly recommend it. Those who don't understand Spanish can find the translations well done. But if one does understand Spanish, then the comparisons are fun, too.
   Beautiful !
There is an Access and Diversity group and a safe space at school where DVDs and books are available for viewing and sharing. Thanks to the Friends of the Carnegie Library, this was a great addition to the collection. Thanks for the support!
