Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"We were accustomed to seeing him in the morning, contemplating the Pacific Ocean . . . filling enormous notebooks with green ink. His poetry took root here, returning to the continual rebirth of the sea."-Marjorie Agosn

Few writers are as bound to place as Pablo Neruda was to the landscape and people of Isla Negra, his home from the late thirties until his death in 1973. These poems, gathered from a trilogy of books, celebrate Neruda's house, the people, the coastline, the sea and its creatures in images that are fundamental to an understanding of his mature work.

About the Author

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) is regarded by many as one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. Born in rural Chile he moved to the capital, Santiago, and published his first book in 1923. During the 20s and 30s he served as a diplomat and was ambassador to Spain at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. This event profoundly changed his writing style to one of addressing social and political concerns. He returned to Chile in 1938 but spent many years in exile due to political conditions. Neruda won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1971.
