The Unknown Neruda

Pablo Neruda

The Unknown Neruda

'The greatest poet of the 20th century', Chilean poet Pablo Neruda has been published across the globe. Remarkably, some of this Nobel Prize-winner's verse has never been published in English; this book fills much of that gap. Neruda's poetry is a fusion of beautiful love poetry and politically engaged verse, lyrical and apocalyptic by turns.
