Neruda's Garden : An Anthology of Odes
The beloved odes written by Chilean poet and 1971 Nobel Laureate Pablo Neruda demonstrate his astonishing ability to present ordinary items in new and surprising ways. The poems are gathered from Odas elementales (Elemental Odes), 1954; Nuevas odas elementales (New Elemental Odes), 1956; Tercer libro de odas, (Third Book of Odes), 1957; and Navegaciones y regresos (Voyages and Homecomings), 1959. This anthology is the most complete selection of Neruda's work to appear in English, in an excellent bilingual format featuring translations by Maria Jacketti, an expert on Pablo Neruda's work.
