    He words will penetrate you......

    Neruda is absolutly the most compelling love poet ever. This book is not only a man's testiment to love; but is his personal journey of self exploration. Neruda writes from the heart, soul, and forces that only some people have been fortunate enough to experience. THe book is absolutly beautiful

    Sensual masterpieces

    I bought this book because for the long time I wanted to read something by Neruda, and this bilingual edition offered an opportunity to read the original Spanish alongside with the English translation. Since I know a bit of Spanish, this was an opportunity to practice it and improve it, as well as get exposed to some of the most sensual and inspiring poems in any language. Neruda's idiom is rich with metaphors, and he takes everyday objects and situations and imbues them with poetic and emotional undertones. This fascination with common objects is particularly useful for someone who is learning Spanish - it provides a great and enjoyable vocabulary-building opportunity. However, be warned - some phrases and words are a bit risque, and you shouldn't be too liberal at trying to impress your Spanish speaking friends at parties. It may lead to some interesting situations.
