Reviews

"Not since Whitman has a poet of genius embraced a whole continent, as Neruda has his, or spoken so directly to the nonpoets among his readers." --Selden Rodman

"Ambitious . . . Meticulously edited . . . Stavans deserves high praise for the volume he has assembled." --John Freeman, San Francisco Chronicle

"The Poetry of Pablo Neruda advertises itself as 'the most comprehensive single volume available in English'--and it certainly is." --Charles Simic, The New York Review of Books

"The greatest poet of the twentieth century--in any language." --Gabriel Garcia Marquez

"[This book provides] an opportunity to reflect on the poet's achievement and his canonical position." --Christopher Winks, The Harvard Review

"If, as Stavans believes, 30 years after his death the time is right for a reappraisal of Neruda, then this volume is just what's needed to jump-start the process. Highly recommended." --Library Journal

"Critic Ilan Stavans has created the first comprehensive English-language survey of Neruda's legendary oeuvre, judiciously selecting and expertly discussing 600 poems to create a genuinely invaluable and deeply pleasurable volume." --Booklist
