Synopses & Reviews
Unequalled in their grace, earthiness, and expression of sensual longing, the love poems of Pablo Neruda are perhaps the most lyrically written and widely read of this century. A perennial best-seller since it was published in Chile nearly 70years ago, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair is now offered for the first time in a beautiful gift edition. A superb translation by W.S. Merwin and striking, richly colored illustrations bring the poems of this classic volume vividlyto life, making it an eloquent, evocative gift for lovers and poetry lovers everywhere.
