Neruda is one of my favorite poets, and this is a strong collection. I appreciate the bilingual edition, since I am not fluent in Spanish, but can read in it to hear the original lyricism.

I don't get it. Maybe it doesn't work in translation. His early stuff makes about as much sense as Tender Buttons, except the words aren't pretty and it sounds like it's supposed to mean something. Some of the later stuff is good, but it still feels like translation just doesn't work for him.
