The following excerpts of Neruda’s most famous poems are emblematic of his ability to express deep passion and sensuality and find vibrant life and majesty in mundane foods like tomatoes. If you forget me. I want you to know one thing. You know how this is: if I look at the crystal moon, at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window, if I touch near the fire the impalpable ash or the wrinkled body of the log, everything carries me to you, as if everything that exists, aromas, light, metals, were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours that.

Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair was published in 1924 when Pablo Neruda was just 19 years old. Considering Neruda was just 19, the work was controversial for its eroticism but it immediately established his reputation and it went on to become his most popular book.

Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto (12 July 1904 – 23 September 1973), better known by his pen name and, later, legal name Pablo Neruda (/nəˈruːdə/; Spanish:.

Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto (12 July 1904 – 23 September 1973), better known by his pen name and, later, legal name Pablo Neruda (/nəˈruːdə/; Spanish: ), was a Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet-diplomat and politician.

First published in 1924, "Viente Poemas de Amor y una Cancion Desperada remains among Neruda's most popular work. Daringly metaphorical, these poems are based upon his own private associations. Their sensuous use of nature symbolism to celebrate love and to express grief has not been surpassed in the literature of our century. This edition offers the original Spanish text, with masterly translations by W.S. Merwin on facing pages.
  • Beautiful. And I bought this used and it was just fine. Makes me feel better when I buy a used book, haha. I like to practice reading these aloud to keep up my Spanish. Bought this one since I gave (but don't know if it was even appreciated) away my copy of another Neruda volume - the bilingual version of "Love Poems" by Pablo Neruda and I loved that anyone I knew could also read it as on one page there's Spanish, and on the next, English. I also liked the size and color of that pink book.

  • A enduring masterpiece of world poetry. Neruda won Nobel for Lit in 1971, and this is his most prized collection. Moreover, an easy read for those readers traumatized by verse in past and reticent to delve into its mysteries. Read slow. Give it time. You'll get it

  • The poems are relaxing to the mind but invigorates the soul. They give you insight to the reality of love itself wherein you can share it when the time comes with the right person. Some things about life never change, no matter the era. When you fully insert yourself into the poetic situation, it will overcome you with the meaning it was intended to. The gratification given is beyond what some words can express and can only be felt through your body sensations.

  • If you're unfamiliar with Neruda, reading this book will give you a hint as to why he won a Nobel Prize. You'll also be amazed when you find he wrote it when he was 19 years old.

    The presentation of his poetry in this little volume is first-rate. It's printed beautifully on good paper, and the illustrations by Picasso just seem to fit.

    The parallel text is a welcome touch. I don't know near enough Spanish for my own good, but I can pronounce it. Reading the poems aloud in their original reveals another reason why they work so beautifully.

    The English translation is a rare combination of accurate and lyrical.

    This book, in this edition, is a rare jewel.

  • If you want to be moved by poetry, get this book. This book is an addition to the Pablo Neruda collection I have.

  • I have always been thankful that English is my first language, for I would hate to read a translated version of a Shakespeare play. Neruda (and perhaps Gabriel Garcia Marquez) is one writer that makes me wish I could read Spanish, for as amazing as his poems are in the translated English (and the are amazing), they must be pure and unabashed magic in their original language. Neruda is able to write on emotions that we occassionaly feel, and often long about, but can seldom work into spoken (yet alone written) words. By far, my favorite in this book of poems is Number 20, which has come to be known as "Tonight I Can Write..." Only after losing the love that I thought would last forever did the words "Love is so short, forgetting so long" sincerely ring true. Neruda's poems in general are amazing, and his ability to capture human emotions is remarkable.

  • There is nothing I can add to what has already been written of Neruda's work that is worth your time to read. I am not a brilliant mind, nor have I the language to express the beauty around that awes and enthralls me. Nor the depth of soul and longing, passion and exuberance. I can only wish that the one for whom I bought this was here with me now.

  • Not being a Neruda admirer, I purchased this book as a present for a friend. But the recipient was delighted with it and has given me the highest praise for it.
