Publisher Comments:

The Nobel Prize-winning poet's most popular work.

When it appeared in 1924, this work launched into the international spotlight a young and unknown poet whose writings would ignite a generation. W. S. Merwin's incomparable translation faces the original Spanish text. Now in a black-spine Classics edition with an introduction by Cristina Garcia, this book stands as an essential collection that continues to inspire lovers and poets around the world.

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) has been called by Gabriel García Márquez "the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language." An outspoken communist, he served briefly in the Chilean congress and in 1971 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

W. S. Merwin has received numerous awards for his poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize. He has translated widely from many languages.

Cristina García is the author of three novels, including Dreaming in Cuban, which was a finalist for the National Book Award.
