1 Review
The selection of poems included here follows a criterion of strict quality. It responds exactly to the title: Neruda's best poems, the most powerful, most intense, and overwhelming, the ones that are full of meaning with experience and language, without any regards for their origins, time frame, or circumstances: only the splendor of its beauty. This is a feast of good poetry as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Neruda's birth this July.

Bilingual edition, so even a very basic knowledge of Spanish demonstrates that 70% of the poetry has been leached out during the translation process. Read full review
