Pablo Neruda. 248 pages.

Pablo Neruda is still one of the most widely read, influential and beloved 20th-century poets. He was a Nobel Laureate, famous for his politically engaged lyrics. He also wrote bold and sexual sonnets. Now, 40 years after his death, this compilation of his sonnets, unlike previous translations, captures the true spirit and verbal dexterity of the lesser-known genre. As part of the Exile Classics series, the poems are followed by questions for discussion, as well as recommended readings.Translated, with an Afterword, by Gustavo Escobedo. Introduction by Rosemary Sullivan. Three reflection on reading Neruda by A.F. Moritz, Beatriz Hausner and George Elliott Clarke. Includes four paintings commissioned for the book, each to start Nerudas "Morning" "Noon" "Afternoon" and "Evening" sequences (cover paintings also by Gabriela Campos).
