Fifty Odes by Pablo Neruda
Translated by George Schade
This bilingual edition of Fifty Odes by Pablo Neruda, lovingly translated by Latin American scholar George Schade, belongs in the collection of every serious poetry lover. Neruda magically transforms everyday objects into radiant apertures through which we see the world anew. Fellow Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez says of Neruda, "He is the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language."
These translations have the same fizziness, the same physical excitement that Pablo Neruda has.
