“The Nobel laureate’s work is refreshingly accessible and unpretentious. He celebrates the joy and wonder of the ordinary and conveys it with confident, playful language. . . . [Mitchell’s] love for this material is clear.” — Seattle Times

The nearly fifty poems selected for this collection and translated by Stephen Mitchell—widely praised for his original and definitive translations of spiritual writings and poetry—focus on Neruda's mature period, when the poet was in his fifties. A bilingual volume, with Neruda's original Spanish text facing Mitchell's English translation, it will bring Neruda's sensuous work to vibrant life for a whole new generation of readers.
