Mostly written on the island paradise of Capri (the idyllic setting of the Oscar-winning movie ), embraces the seascapes surrounding the poet and his love Matilde Urrutia, their waves and shores saturated with a new, yearning eroticism.         © 1973 by Neruda & Walsh

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More... more... Please!!! This is a deceptively slim volume of the late poet's work... but it contains several pieces of his sublime work. I can actually read most of the Spanish and understand it... I also read each piece in English and find the two are very compatible... I discovered Pablo Neruda through shares on Facebook; on YouTube you can find some things being read by Neruda... but to hold these poems in your hands in such a beautiful little volume is exquisite!!! I highly recommend this volume for a gift... I gave it for Valentines Day... but do NOT forget yourself... order two!!! I'd love to collect all this poet's work... hope we get more offered to us...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh. My. Goodness. Pablo Neruda's Love Poems is a short, small book of poems and odes that allows the reader to choose whether or not they would like to follow the writings in english, or Neruda's native Spanish. I picked this little gem up by chance and was blown away--my goodness, the turn of phrase, the prose, his lyrical voice--even translated--took my breath away. His are some of the most passionate, and at times plaintive, words I've ever read. It is an outstandingly beautiful collection I would be loath to ever give up. I would especially recommend this to someone looking for readings at a wedding--the love Neruda held for his partner is evident in every syllable.

In 1971, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Two years later he died of leukemia in Santiago, Chile.

Editorial Reviews

“One of the greatest major poets of the twentieth century. ()”

“It is difficult to find an analogue for the sustained passion and gentleness communicated in this absolutely stunning apotheosis of the poetry of sexual love....Matilde Urrutia deserves to enter history in the company of Petrarch’s Laura and Dante’s Beatrice.()”
