Still Another Day/Aunby Pablo Neruda
Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Spanish Bilingual. Translated from the Spanish and with an introduction by William O'Daly. This elegant, slightly larger than pocket-sized second edition of a classic Neruda text includes a new 2004 introduction by the translator. STILL ANOTHER DAY is the first authorized English translation of Aun, considered among Neruda's finest long poems. More aware than ever of his imminent death, these 28 cantos--written during two intensely lyrical days--launch the poet on a personal expedition in search of his deepest roots. It is a soaring tribute to the Chilean people, their history and survival that invokes the Araucanian Indians, the conquistadors who tried to enslave them, folklore, the people and place of his childhood and the sights and smells of the marketplace. As in the best poetry, Neruda's particulars become profoundly universal. Be sure to check out the many other books by Neruda available from SPD.
Published in 1984, this remains the first and only English translation of Neruda's farewell to Chile.
“Neruda’s lyricism wakes us up, even in the face of death, to the connections we have with our land, inner and outer.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

In 1970 he was appointed as Chile's ambassador to France; in 1971 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. William O'Daly has translated six books of Pablo Neruda's late and posthumous work, including the best-selling Book of Questions. His work as a translator has been featured on The Today Show.
