Publishers Description: The most comprehensive English-language collection of work ever by "the greatest poet of the twentieth century - in any language" - Gabriel García Mrquez"In his work a continent awakens to consciousness." So wrote the Swedish Academy in awarding the Nobel Prize to Pablo Neruda, the author of more than thirty-five books of poetry and one of Latin Americas most revered writers, lionized during his lifetime as "the peoples poet." This selection of Nerudas poetry, the most comprehensive single volume available in English, presents nearly six hundred poems. Scores of them are in new and sometimes multiple translations, and many accompanied by the Spanish original. In his introduction, Ilan Stavans situates Neruda in his native milieu as well as in a contemporary English-language one, and a group of new translations by leading poets testifies to Nerudas enduring, vibrant legacy among English-speaking writers and readers today.
