Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair : (Dual-Language Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Description

Brilliant English translation of beloved poems by Pablo Neruda, who is the subject of the film Neruda starring Gael García Bernal and directed by Pablo Larraín

A Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition, with French flaps

First published in 1924, Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada remains among Pablo Neruda's most popular work. Daringly metaphorical and sensuous, this collection juxtaposes youthful passion with the desolation of grief. Drawn from the poet's most intimate and personal associations, the poems combine eroticism and the natural world with the influence of expressionism and the genius of a master poet. This edition features the newly corrected original Spanish text, with masterly English translations by award-winning poet W. S. Merwin on facing pages. - Includes twelve sketches by Pablo Picasso
- New introduction by Cristina García
