Editorial Reviews

The New Yorker
"We are not likely to get, in English, a more detailed, subtle, and sympathetic analysis of the complicated and enigmatic poet Pablo Neruda."
Hispania
"The book is impressive for the number of pieces chose, the good taste of the selections, and above all, the mastery with which Ben Belitt has turned into English someof the finest and most difficult works of the celebrated Chilean poet."
New York Times Book Review
"One of the greatest poets of the Spanish world... also one of the major poets of the twentieth century.... A robust, Whitmanesque surrealism surges forth like a jungle river.... Ben Belitt's translations are inspired."
