“Ambitious . . . Meticulously edited . . . Stavans deserves high praise for the volume he has assembled.” ―John Freeman, San Francisco Chronicle
“The Poetry of Pablo Neruda advertises itself as 'the most comprehensive single volume available in English'--and it certainly is.” ―Charles Simic, The New York Review of Books
“The greatest poet of the twentieth century--in any language.” ―Gabriel Garcia Marquez
“[This book provides] an opportunity to reflect on the poet's achievement and his canonical position.” ―Christopher Winks, The Harvard Review
“If, as Stavans believes, 30 years after his death the time is right for a reappraisal of Neruda, then this volume is just what's needed to jump-start the process. Highly recommended.” ―Library Journal
“Critic Ilan Stavans has created the first comprehensive English-language survey of Neruda's legendary oeuvre, judiciously selecting and expertly discussing 600 poems to create a genuinely invaluable and deeply pleasurable volume.” ―Booklist

Great compendium for if you want almost every poem Neruda has ever written, but artistically leaves much to be desired.
