Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“What better way to celebrate the hundred years of Neruda’s glorious residence on our earth than this selection of crucial works—in both languages!—by one of the greatest poets of all time. A splendid way to begin a love affair with our Pablo or, having already succumbed to his infinite charms, revisit him passionately again and again and yet again.” Ariel Dorfman, Pulitzer Prize–winning author
“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 twentieth century.” Tulsa World
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. At only 234 pages, it somehow manages to convey the fullness of Neruda’s poetic arc: reading it is like reading the autobiography of a poetic sensibility.” Austin Chronicle

Author Bio: Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda (1904–1973) was born in the town of Parral in Chile. He received numerous prestigious awards for his work, including the International Peace Prize in 1950 and the Lenin Peace Prize in 1953. In 1971 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Two years later he died in Santiago, Chile, probably a victim of the Pinochet government. Pinochet denied permission for Neruda’s funeral to be made a public event. Thousands of grieving Chileans disobeyed the curfew, however, and crowded the streets of Santiago.
