Sublime Blue: Selected Early Odes of Pablo Neruda

Translator: William Pitt Root

Paperback

Price: $16.00

Overview

A translation of Pablo Neruda’s early collections of odes, this book features poems that are addressed to hope and to gloom, to numbers and to the atom, to blue flowers and to artichokes. Reflecting the lucent, candid vitality driving Neruda’s charming accounts, these poems celebrate things big and the small: even lamentations become commemorations. Compassionately amused one moment then sobered by injustice and supportive of resistance the next, this bilingual compilation will appeal to fans of one of the 20th century’s most popular poets.

In addition to vibrant translations of Neruda's early odes, William Pitt Root has given us a fine introduction about why this gathering matters. In both the original poems and the translations, the high energy is exciting and clear. And having assimilated Neruda's seemingly off-handed style in what he calls these 'tall, slender poetic stalks, ' Root has a world of gifts for us that's powerful and engaging. –James Hoggard, author, Triangles of Light: The Edward Hopper Poems and The Mayor's Daughter
