Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda was born Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto in Parral, Chile, in 1904. He served as consul in Burma and held diplomatic posts in various East Asian and European countries. In 1945, a few years after he joined the Communist Party, Neruda was elected to the Chilean Senate. Shortly thereafter, when Chile's political climate took a sudden turn to the right, Neruda fled to Mexico, and lived as an exile for several years. He later established a permanent home at Isla Negra. In 1970 he was appointed as Chile's ambassador to France, and in 1971 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Pablo Neruda died in 1973.

Copper Canyon Press has published nine volumes of Neruda's late and posthumous poetry, including the best-selling The Book of Questions. Recent publications include World's End (2009), The Hands of Day (2008), and The Sea and the Bells (2002). For a complete list of titles, see below.
