Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair by Pablo Neruda, W.S. Merwin, Cristina García
Drawn from the most intimate and personal associations, Pablo Neruda’s most beloved collection of poetry juxtaposes the exuberance of youthful passion with the desolation of grief, the sensuality of the body with the metaphorical nuances of nature.
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet W. S. Merwin’s masterly translation faces the original Spanish text.
This edition also features an insightful Introduction by Cristina Garcia. More than eighty years after its publication, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair stands as an essential collection that continues to inspire lovers and poets around the world.
