Yellow Heart, The
Pablo Neruda

Translated and with an introduction by William O'Daly

Bilingual edition

The allegories, love songs and laments in The Yellow Heart were written as the poet prepared for his death. The poems in this book embrace the multiple, often contradictory responses to a lifetime filled with threats and mundane pleasures, fame and privacy.

For Yellow Heart, The, Pablo Neruda

"Confirms the mature poet as a surpassing craftsman with a marvelous range of voice and texture."—Publishers Weekly

"In turns lyrical, then narrative, Neruda's latest is a rich tapestry, varied in content and theme but steadfastly first rate... Filled with absurdity and play as well as fear, these [are] exquisite, lucid poems."—Booklist

"William O'Daly's introduction, 'The Improvisational Spirit of Pablo Neruda,' is an excellent discussion of Neruda's later poetry, much of which was published after his death... O'Daly's translations capture both the spirit and the feeling of the original and this volume is thus an extremely worthwhile addition to collections of contemporary poetry."—Choice

"... the grandeur of Neruda's poetry at its best... The poet comes through well in O'Daly's translation. Essential."—Library Journal

"William O'Daly and Copper Canyon Press are to be applauded for making available this excellent translation... The literary adventure the reader embarks upon here is unlike any other offered by Neruda."—Calapooya Collage

"Copper Canyon's crown achievement... has been the publication of William O'Daly's translations of... Pablo Neruda's later work. Most special to me of these is... The Yellow Heart which... presents Neruda in all his autumnal splendor."—Writer’s Northwest
