Editorial Reviews

"Sublime Blue is an extraordinary and very welcome collection of Neruda’s early odes, from those well-known in English to those unknown. Poet William Pitt Root has done a masterful job of bringing some of Neruda’s most enigmatic poems into English. Neruda’s majestic language and vision are rendered here with passion and eloquence. This is a true gift to poetry."  —Marjorie Agosin, human rights activist and Luella Lamer Slaner professor of Latin American Studies, Wellesley College
