The Captain's Verses/Los Versos Del Capitan
Pablo Neruda, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, finished writing The Captain's Verses in 1952 while in exile on the island of Capri—the paradisal setting for the blockbuster film Il Postino (The Postman). 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.

This is a book that made me intoxicated with Neruda's words of love and passion. Each poem stirs in you an unspoken longing, one that you did not know existed in you. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Read full review
