Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Odes for the everyday person about everyday things: artichokes, thread, chestnuts... The one that I bought the book for was "Ode to My Socks" - marvelous! I'll never feel the same about socks again. I also really enjoy the format with the original Spanish on one side of the page and the line-by-line English translation on the other, so you can enjoy it equally well in either language or both!

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent selection from Pablo Neruda's 3 volumes of odes, very well translated by Margaret Sayers Peden, who also provides a concise introduction to her philosophy of translation. The statistics on the numbers of odes from each volume is as follows:

"Elemental Odes" = 28
"New Elemental Odes" = 13
"Third Book of Odes" = 26

What is also very nice about this volume is that Neruda's originals and Peden's translations are on facing pages, so that you can directly compare them and judge for yourself how well she has done, if you read Spanish. Speaking just for myself, I admit that I do not read Spanish, so I cannot fully judge how well Peden has done her translations. But on their own terms in English, I found the texts to be splendid.

If you want to dip your toes in the poetry of Neruda, this volume makes an excellent place to begin.
