Essential Neruda
Pablo Neruda (1904-73) was the greatest Latin American poet of the 20th century. A prolific, inspirational poet, he wrote many different kinds of poems covering a wide range of themes, notably love, death, grief and despair. His poetry celebrates the dramatic Chilean landscape and rages against the exploitation of his people, for whom he became a national hero. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1971 for 'a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams'. This book presents fifty of his most essential poems in dynamic new translations, the result of an unprecedented collaboration between a team of poets, translators and leading Neruda scholars who came together to revisit or completely retranslate the poems. Also including some previously untranslated works, this bilingual edition sets the standard for a general, high-quality introduction to Neruda's complete oeuvre. The Essential Neruda includes translations by Mark Eisner, John Felstiner, Forrest Gander, Robert Hass, Jack Hirschman, Stephen Kessler, Stephen Mitchell and Alastair Reid, with an introduction by Mark Eisner and a foreword by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems
This bilingual collection of Neruda's most essential poems will prove indispensable. Selected by a team of poets and prominent Neruda scholars in both Chile and the U.S., this is a definitive selection that draws from the entire breadth and width of Neruda's various styles and themes. An impressive group of translators that includes Alistair Reid, Stephen Mitchell, Robert Hass, Stephen Kessler and Jack Hirschman, have come together to revisit or completely retranslate the poems; and a handful of previously untranslated works are included as well. This selection sets the standard for a general, high--quality introduction to Neruda's complete oeuvre. The call for a more accessible collection of Neruda's important poems is answered with City Lights' The Essential Neruda, a 200-page edition that offers 50 of Neruda's key poems. The editors and translators know how to extract gold from a lifetime of prolific writing. If you want a handy Neruda companion and don't know where to begin, this is it. --The Bloomsbury Review ...The Essential Neruda will prove to be, for most readers, the best introduction to Neruda available in English. In fact, I can think of few other books that have given me so much delight so easily. At only 234 pages (bilingual), it somehow manages to convey the fullness of Neruda's poetic arc: Reading it is like reading the autobiography of a poetic sensibility (granted, the abridged version). --The Austin Chronicle This book is a must-have for any reader interested in a definitive sampling of the most essential poems by one whom many consider one of the best poets of the 20th century. --Mike Nobles, Tulsa World What better way to celebrate the hundred years of Neruda's glorious residence on our earth than this selection of crucial works - in both languages! - by one of the greatest poets of all time. A splendid way to begin a love affair with our Pablo or, having already succumbed to his infinite charms, revisit him passionately again and again and yet again. --Ariel Dorfman, author of Konfidenz and The Nanny and the Iceberg If the notion had struck Pablo Neruda, I am quite sure that like Fernando Pessoa and Antonio Machado he would have given birth to what the former called heteronyms. Like Pessoa especially, Neruda can be several poets according to where he is and when and what his mood might be. It is quite fitting therefore that his work in this anthology be shared by various translators, for, ideally, a translator is but another heteronym speaking in a different tongue and at a different time. Neruda is well served here by these other voices of his. --Gregory Rabassa Pablo Neruda was born in Chile in 1904. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.

Canto General
El Canto General es un poema ordenado en 15 cantos, 231 poemas y mas de quince mil versos.compuesto durante 13 anos, desde Espana hasta su exilio en Mexico, donde aparece por primera vez. Obra tremendamente ambiciosa, pretende ser una cronica o enciclopedia de toda Hispanoamerica. Muchos criticos lo han calificado como un texto de poesia epica, ya que su canto esta dirigido a la naturaleza e historia entera del continente americano. Se trata de una obra "densa y monumental, la de mayor amplitud tematica y sintesis americanista que se haya realizado en el continente." Constituye un poema epico y moral, que se basa en la biografia de un continente, desde los dias precolombinos, pasando por la llegada de los conquistadores hasta la actualidad de su redaccion; es tambien la biografia del propio Neruda y un canto a sus compatriotas. Es una obra ambiciosa que pretende ser una enciclopedia de Hispanoamerica. Su tema basico es el continente americano (Geografia, historia, gente). Los versos en esta obra no tienen rima, son de distintas extensiones y los mas utilizados son los eneasilabos y endecasilabos. Uno de los aspectos mas insolitos, si lo observamos desde el punto de vista cultural, es la incorporacion de la Historia como tema literario y de su peculiar manejo en Canto General, y desde su propia interpretacion crear una imagen de la Historia de America. Desde el punto de vista cultural, son muy contadas las obras que han hecho de la Historia un objeto poetico. Por lo general, estas obras surgen bajo ciertas condiciones culturales que se suman a la voluntad del poeta, para convertir la Historia en un tema y en una creacion poetica. Neruda, genio y figura, con esta obra inmortaliza su trabajo literario y convierte a este poemario en lectura obligada para las presentes y futuras generaciones de Hispanoamerica."
