… “A child who does not play is not a child, but the man who doesn’t play has lost forever the child who lived in him and who he will miss terribly.”
Pablo Neruda

  • "The Dragon is Slain!"This is my favorite photo ever. I actually have it on my computer desktop at my dental office. Priceless!

  • Great photo and great Pablo quote! Check out a documentary on Neruda and the bestselling edition of translations, "The Essential Neruda" "The call for a more accessible collection of Neruda's important poems is answered with City Lights' The Essential Neruda, a 200-page edition that offers 50 of Neruda's key poems. The editors and translators know how to extract gold from a lifetime of prolific writing. If you want a handy Neruda companion and don't know where to begin, this is it."– The Bloomsbury Review"What better way to celebrate the hundred years of Neruda's glorious residence on our earth than this selection of crucial works – in both languages! – by one of the greatest poets of all time. A splendid way to begin a love affair with our Pablo or, having already succumbed to his infinite charms, revisit him passionately again and again and yet again."– Ariel Dorfman, Pulitzer-prize winner author of "Death and the Maiden"" …The Essential Neruda will prove to be, for most readers, the best introduction to Neruda available in English. In fact, I can think of few other books that have given me so much delight so easily. At only 234 pages (bilingual), it somehow manages to convey the fullness of Neruda's poetic arc: Reading it is like reading the autobiography of a poetic sensibility (granted, the abridged version)."– The Austin ChroniclePaz,Mark
