One of the greatest major poets of the twentieth century. (The New York Times Book Review) "
It is difficult to find an analogue for the sustained passion and gentleness communicated in this absolutely stunning apotheosis of the poetry of sexual love....Matilde Urrutia deserves to enter history in the company of Petrarch s Laura and Dante s Beatrice.(Library Journal) "

Beautiful poetry especially if you are a fan of Pablo Neruda like me.
Because of its small size and light weight it's easy to carry around. You can just randomly open any page and enjoy. Makes a lovely gift for a poetry lovers.
my heart broke loose on the wind."
I do not know much about Pablo Neruda's politics but I do know he wrote some of the best love poems I've ever read. Only two of the poems in this book border on the erotic. I'd even say one of the poems borders on horror. The mermaid poem is sad but a total fantasy. Pablo Neruda was a hopeless romantic so in this book 6 out of 10 poems are love poems. I like that they included the poem with this line: "Love is short, forgetting is so long." This book also contains a very long poem about fisherman and the sea. It seems to speak of a concern for humanity's well being. So there are only 10 poems in this very small book. Also the cover on my book is much different than what is shown. It is actually a better cover.
