Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This bilingual volume is the definitive collection of the poetry of Pablo Neruda, the 1971 Nobel Prize winner, "our great Latin American Whitmanesque father"(Library Journal), and one of the most profoundly influential poets of the twentieth century. His love poems are earthy and transcendent, and his political poems are the work of a man as incisive, impassioned, and ferociously intelligent as he was sensual.

Review:

"It is difficult to speak of Pablo Neruda's poetry as poetry. It is easier to compare him to Bartok for his driving rhythms, his intensity of passion, or to Stravinsky for his harsh dissonances and strange harmonies. Or if not music, perhaps painting. Critic Angel Flores likens him to Picasso. ..[for] 'their fertile, chameleon-like creativeness, their constant, unpredictable transformations.' The Christian Science Monitor

Synopsis:

This bilingual volume is the definitive collection of the poetry of Pablo Neruda, the 1971 Nobel Prize winner and one of the most profoundly influential poets of the twentieth century. His love poems are earthy and transcendent, and his political poems are the work of a man as incisive, impassioned, and ferociously intelligent as he was sensual. Ben Belitt has drawn the 138 selections in Five Decades from all of Neruda's major works, including the early volumes Residence on Earth, General Song, Elemental Odes, Voyages and Homecomings, Book of Vagaries, A Hundred Love Sonnets, Black Island Memorial, and the later The Hands of Day, World's End, and Skystones.
