5.0 out of 5 stars Loving the Love Poems, 24 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook) (Paperback)
I have only recently discovered Neruda but he is a treasure!
His poetry transcends beauty and speaks of love almost immeasurable....perfect. I defy anyone to not be moved by this work.
This volume is bilingual, with the Spanish text on the left of each page and the English translation opposite.
It's also a small volume, perfect for carrying in a handbag, in order to experience romantic interludes during a busy day, on public transport!
Can you tell that I love it?!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook) (Paperback)
The Spanish translations are accurate and extremely helpful. Having them opposite the English poems is a really good lay out and the quality of the book itself was also highly commendable. Would certainly recommend. A fantastic romantic collection of love poems.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most beautiful love poetry I have ever read., 13 May 2010
This review is from: Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook) (Paperback)
This is a pocket sized book full of passion and romance written in English and Spanish (very handy if you're learning Spanish!) The poems are set out so that the Spanish poem is on the left hand page and the English translation is on the right hand page.

With beautiful lines such as "with your brow on my brow and your mouth on my mouth, our bodies tied by the love that consumes us" from the poem "Wind on the Island" and "the fire saw our naked kiss grow until it touched hidden stars, and it saw grief be born and die like a broken sword against invincible love" from the poem "Epithalamium" this book is wonderful!

I love poetry and Pablo Neruda is the best poet to read if you want love poems, I have 7 of his books and still want more! He is such an inspiration to me & he has inspired some of my work to become more sensual!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pablo Neruda is a master of his craft, beautiful love poems., 24 May 2010
This review is from: Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook) (Paperback)
This book is full of wonderful love poems, descriptive, full of passion and in one word - beautiful!

Having each poem in English and Spanish in one book is a really good idea and having seen what Newspapers have written about Pablo, I totally agree that he is one of the greatest poets of the 20th Century in any language.

Pablo wrote most of this book on the Island Paradise of Capri and he has obviously been inspired by the surroundings such as in the poems "Wind on the Island" and "Night on the Island" as well as his lover Matilde.

I quote from "Wind on the Island"
"Hide me in your arms
just for this night,
while the rain breaks
against sea and earth
its innumerable mouth"

Anyone who has ever fallen in love will identify with it.

Another book that I love which is also love poetry is "The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse) a variety of rhyming poems ranging from sensual to humorous.
