The poems are lovely, the translation is lacking 30 Sep 2008
By Elisabeth A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No complaints about the poetry. Pablo Neruda works are wonderful. Mistakes in translation - example in Sonnet LXXXIX- The line should read:
When I die I want your hands on my eyes

This copy has it:
When I did I want your hands on my eyes

Takes away the pleasure of reading the sonnets.

Yes but 5 May 2009
By Henry Seltzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Just to add to the former reviewer. These translations are also sometimes better that the Tapscott translation that is so much more common. Example from XII: "que oscura claridad se abre entre tus columnas" was translated (Tapscott) as

What secret clarity open through your columns

contrast with (Escobedo)

What dark clarity opens between your columns

- for my money only the second of these makes sense. I didn't get this line until I read this book's version.
