From the Publisher
Pablo Neruda, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, finished writing in 1952 while in exile on the island of Capri—the paradisal setting for the blockbuster film (). Surrounded by sea, sun, and Capri''s natural splendors, Neruda addressed these poems to his lover Matilde Urrutia before they were married, but didn''t publish them publicly until 1963. This complete, bilingual collection has become a classic for love-struck readers around the world—passionately sensuous, and exploding with all the erotic energy of a new love.
