Description

"Chilean Pablo Neruda is Latin America's greatest poet and one of the finest ever to have written in the Spanish language. The Peruvian poet, Cesar Vallejo, part Indian and born in a mining village, ranks not far below Neruda. Robert Bly is one of America's foremost poets, and a translator of uncommon brilliance. The combination makes for a priceless volume."--Long Beach Press Telegram

Back cover copy

'Robert Bly is a vital link between poetry and the brass tacks of living, a very suitable editor for Pablo Neruda and Cesar Vallejo.... His selection of poems shows his creative instinct. He is the best of three translators represented, though all are good. His interview with Neruda shows two poets bringing out the best in each other....' Kansas City Star
