Selected Odes of Pablo Neruda (Latin American Literature and Culture) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The atom, a tuna, laziness, love—the everyday elements and essences of human experience glow in the translucent language of Neruda's odes. Chilean poet Pablo Neruda wrote three books of odes during his lifetime. Odas elementales was published in 1954, followed in subsequent years by Nuevas odas elementales and Tercer libro de las odas. Margaret Sayers Peden's selection of odes from all three volumes, printed with the Spanish originals on facing pages, is by far the most extensive yet to appear in English. She vividly conveys the poet's vision of the realities of day-to-day life in her trans-lations, while her brief introduction describes the genesis of the poems.

Synopsis:

Simple, true, elemental poems --English translations with original Spanish en face

Synopsis:

"Neruda's odes, coming as they did after the lyric intensity of Residencia en la tierra and the epic sweep of Canto General, carved out a new field for him and for Latin American poetry. . . . The Odas elementales have found a sensitive, sensible translator. "—John Felstiner, Stanford University

About the Author

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was born and died in Chile, but as a member of the diplomatic corps and later as a sort of roving cultural ambassador, he lived in and visited many parts of the world. His first book of poetry was published before he was twenty, and Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, published the following year, made him famous throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Besides the Canto and the Elemental Odes series, the major works of his vast poetic production include Residence on Earth and Estravagario. Jack Schmitt is Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at California State University, Long Beach, and translator of Raul Zurita's Anteparadise (California, 1986). Reviewing Zurita's Anteparadise, critic W. S. Merwin called Schmitt a sensitive, precise, dedicated translator (Los Angeles Times Book Review).Roberto González Echevarría is R. Seldon Rose Professor of Spanish, Professor of Comparative Literature, and Chairman of the Department of Spanish at Yale University. Margaret Sayers Peden is Professor Emerita of Spanish at the University of Missouri, Columbia. The author of Emilio Carballidoand editor of The Latin American Short Story, A Critical History, she has translated more than twenty works of fiction, drama, and poetry.
