A New Decade: Poems 1958-1967. Translated by Ben Belitt and Alastair Reid.
by Neruda, Pablo.

Publisher Information:
Grove Press, New York: 1969.

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket with some light foxing to the jacket extremities and wear to the head of the spine. Neruda is a Whitmanesque poet with surrealist overtones and touches of Blakean mysticism. Neruda's imagery is piercingly sensual (flowers and vineyards, doves and swallows, islands and climates are celebrated both in their own rights and as symbolic evocations of human desires or memories), while his cadences, even in such striking examples of free verse as Summits of Macchu Picchu, imitate or suggest musical forms. Though meditative, as befits his mature years, A New Decade is one of Neruda's most exhilarating performances, bringing together various pictorial, historical, and erotic elements in a style splendidly secure, rich, and chimerical. Certainly a master is at work here, one long overdue a Nobel Prize.
