Pablo Neruda, the revered Chilean poet, was a masterful wordsmith who painted the canvas of emotions with his verses. In Love Poems, Neruda invites readers into a world where love is an art form, nature a muse, and every emotion a carefully crafted melody.
These verses, later celebrated as the most enchanting in the Nobel Prize winner's collection, unveil earthbound images that linger gently, offering an erotic re-imagining of the world through the prism of a lover's body.
A collection of 19 of Pablo Neruda’s most evocative and yearning poems regarding love and lovers, presented in both English and their native Spanish on opposite pages. Paperback cover with beautiful rose gold relief. Translated by Donald D. Walsh.
