Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forty years after Pablo Nerudas death, this compilation of his sonnets, unlike previous translations, captures the true spirit and verbal dexterity of his lesser-known genre. 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, who also wrote these bold and sensual sonnets. In this new edition, the poems are followed by three essays on reading Neruda and his poetic effect by the notable poets and translators A. F. Moritz, Beatriz Hausner, and Torontos Poet Laureate (2012-2015) George Elliott Clarke, as well as a new afterword by the translator, questions for discussion, and recommended readings.

Pablo Neruda was one of the most famous poets of all time. From the 1940s on, his works reflected the political struggle of the left and the sociohistorical developments in South America. He is also very famous for his love poems, which have sold more than a million copies. Gustavo Escobedo works as a teacher, a photographer, and a translator. His other translated work is The Wolf's Mouth which won numerous prizes in its original Spanish. Rosemary Sullivan is a celebrated critic, editor, poet, and biographer. She is the author of: The Red Shoes: Margaret Atwood Starting Out (biography), Blue Panic(poetry), The Garden Master: The Poetry of Theodore Roethke (criticism), Labyrinth of Desire: Women, Passion, and Romantic Obsession (nonfiction), and editor of Oxford Book of Stories by Canadian Women in English (anthology).

He has also written seven nonfiction books, and translated eight books into English. He currently teaches at Victoria College in the University of Toronto. Beatriz Hausner is a published poet and the translator of some 20 works of literature, principally from Spanish into English. Many of her poems were collected in The Invisible Presence Sixteen Poets of Spanish America 1925-1995 and she is the author of a full-length poetry collection, The Wardrobe Mistress.
