Book of Twilight
Pablo Neruda

Neruda’s first book, published in Chile when the poet was a teenager, has never been published in its entirety in the U.S. Presenting the highly romantic style refined and empowered in his later books, Neruda’s debut introduces a bold poet unafraid to take risks to revivify what poetry is meant to do. Translated by renowned Neruda translator William O’Daly.

For Book of Twilight, Pablo Neruda

“The greatest poet of the 20th century in any language.” —Gabriel Garcia Marquez

“Without his poetic adventure, there would be no modern literature in Latin America. His enormous scope was due to the fact that he dared take on the risks of impurity, imperfection, and, yes, banality. He had to do it, in order to name a world. Our world.” —New York Times

“There is something about Neruda—about the way he glorifies experience, about the spontaneity and directness of his passion—that sets him apart from other poets. It is hard not to be swept away by the urgency of his language.” —The New Yorker

“In Neruda the possibility of revival is never far away... For him, poetry could change everything. He lived a life of passionate engagement and his work was ambitious in every sense.” —Los Angeles Times
