"The Chilean Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was probably the greatest and certainly the most prolific of twentieth-century Latin American poets. He brought out his first collection at the age of seventeen, and quickly developed an assured and distinctive poetic voice. His third book, Veinte poemas de amor y una cancion desesperada- 'twenty love poems and a song of despair' - was published in 1924 and attracted international acclaim. It remains one of the most celebrated and admired books of erotic poetry published in the last hundred years, with over a million copies sold worldwide. Neruda was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1971."

The most comprehensive English-language collection of work ever by "the greatest poet of the twentieth century-in any language" (Gabriel García Márquez) In his work a continent awakens to consciousness," wrote the Swedish Academy in awarding the Nobel Prize to Pablo Neruda, author of more than thirty-five books of poetry and one of Latin America's most revered writers and political figures-a loyal member of the Communist party, a lifelong diplomat and onetime senator, a man lionized during his lifetime as "the people's poet." Born Neftali Basoalto, Neruda adopted his pen name in fear of his family's disapproval, and yet by the age of twenty-five he was already famous for the book Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, which remains his most beloved. During the next fifty years, a seemingly boundless metaphorical language linked his romantic fantasies and the fierce moral and political compass-exemplified in books such as Canto General-that made him an adamant champion of the dignity of ordinary men and women. Edited and with an introduction by Ilan Stavans, this is the most comprehensive single-volume collection of this prolific poet's work in English. Here the finest translations of nearly six hundred poems by Neruda are collected and join specially commissioned new translations that attest to Neruda's still-resounding presence in American letters.

Liebe, Humor, Frau, Mann. KOmmt nun noch die Freude am sprachlichen Experiment dazu, ist man bei den erotischen Gedichten des amerikanischen Lyrikers und Malers E.E. CUmmings (1894-1962) angelangt. CUmmings liebt das Physische in allem, was er tut: Er liebt die Buchstaben, die Worter. UNd er liebt die Frauen, die Erotik, den Sex. SO wie er immer wieder die sinnliche Einheit zweier Liebender und ihrer Korper feiert, so spielt er auch mit dem Korper der gedruckten Sprache: Er trennt und vereint die sprachlichen Korperteile, um sie zu neuen und uberraschend lustvollen Bildern im Kopf der Leser werden zu lassen. SEine Gedichte bewegen sich dabei zwischen romantisch und obszon, zartlich und derb, verspielt und frivol. SEine liebevollen erotischen Stellungnahmen entzucken und provozieren. Dieser Band vereint zum ersten Mal ausgewahlte erotische Gedichte aus dem umfangreichen lyrischen Werk von E.E. CUmmings.

A translation of Pablo Neruda's early collections of odes, this book features poems that are addressed to hope and to gloom, to numbers and to the atom, to blue flowers and to artichokes. Reflecting the lucent, candid vitality driving Neruda's charming accounts, these poems celebrate things big and the small: even lamentations become commemorations. Compassionately amused one moment then sobered by injustice and supportive of resistance the next, this bilingual compilation will appeal to fans of one of the 20th century's most popular poets.

New Directions celebrates the Pablo Neruda Centennial. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Pablo Neruda's birth, New Directions is pleased to announce the reissue of a classic work in a timeless translation by Donald D. Walsh and fully bilingual. The Captain's Verses was first published anonymously in 1952, some years before Neruda married Matilde Urrutia - the one with "the fire / of an unchained meteor" - to whom he had addressed these poems of love, ecstasy, devotion, and fury. Our bilingual edition is seen by many as the most intimate and passionate volume of Neruda's love poetry, capturing all the erotic energy of a new love.

Few writers of any age have described the pleasures and torments of erotic love with such unsentimental directness and sensual precision as Pablo Neruda. In this poetry, too, he is at his most accessible, the language of his odes and lyrics refined to the point at which it achieves what one critic has called 'the naturalness of song.' This short selection draws on work from throughout his writing career, from the famous early collection, Twenty Love Songs and a Song of Despair of 1924 to key works of his maturity like Elemental Odes from 1954 and the autobiographical Memorial de Isla Negra. These ten poems formed the subtext for the well-known film Il Postino which was based on an apocryphal episode in the life of the Chilean poet and Nobel Laureate. They reveal why many believe that Neruda was the finest love poet of the century.
