5.0 out of 5 stars Unparalleled Beauty
"100 Love Sonnets" was my introduction to Pablo Neruda, and I have to say these are some of the most beautiful poems that I have ever read. I'm not a huge poetry fan, and so I was amazed that I read all the poems all the way through in one sitting. Anyone who has ever loved someone will feel these poems flow though their soul. Anyone who has ever tried to...

5.0 out of 5 stars using the finite, neruda acheives the infinite, 17 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: One Hundred Love Sonnets: Cien Sonetos De Amor (Texas Pan American Series) (Paperback)
Pablo Neruda manages, with sparing use of words, to capture the wholel of love and bring it close enough, using the concrete and finite word , to allow the readers to touch the meaning of the eternal and abstract. In short, incredible.

Beautiful poetry !!! This is more of a personal book of poems about his lover than poems for lovers. Pablo Neruda makes simple words beautiful. You can t help but love his poetry !!!

"Sonnets of earth and wood" is a humble description for this reflection into the heart of the Chillean poet. His words will echo through the mind and touch the soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars what can i say?, 13 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: One Hundred Love Sonnets: Cien Sonetos De Amor (Texas Pan American Series) (Paperback)
I've actually only read one poem from this book so far, Sonnet 17 ("I don't love you as if you were the salt rose, topaz... so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close."), but it's incredible. Like many people, I first ran into this poem through the movie Patch Adams. A couple days ago, a friend of mine sent it to me saying that she knew I'd appreciate it, and she was right... right now, the book is sitting in my backpack, waiting until I can get a few spare moments to enjoy it.
