Neruda, Pablo; Jacketti, Maria (Translator). Pittsburgh, PA: Latin American Literary Review Press 1996 . Text in Spanish and English. Trade paperback. 141 pp. A clean, attractive copy. “There are many extant English translations of Chilean Nobel Laureate Neruda’s poetry, but none contain these resplendent sacred songs. Written more than three decades ago late in Neruda’s aesthetically and politically active life, these long, operatic, and exalted poems celebrate the great mysteries of life. Neruda wrote often and passionately of the sea, mountains, sun, moon, and stars, always from unexpected perspectives.” – Booklist Book: Very Good. Dust Jacket: .
