Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook)-Pablo Neruda
Customer Reviews This book is full of wonderful love poems, descriptive, full of passion and in one word - beautiful!

Having each poem in English and Spanish in one book is a really good idea and having seen what Newspapers have written about Pablo, I totally agree that he is one of the greatest poets of the 20th Century in any language.

Pablo wrote most of this book on the Island Paradise of Capri and he has obviously been inspired by the surroundings such as in the poems "Wind on the Island" and "Night on the Island" as well as his lover Matilde.

I quote from "Wind on the Island"
"Hide me in your arms
just for this night,
while the rain breaks
against sea and earth
its innumerable mouth"

Anyone who has ever fallen in love will identify with it.

Another book that I love which is also love poetry is "The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse) a variety of poems ranging from sensual to humorous.

Book Description
Publication Date: January 17, 2008 | Series: New Directions Paperbook

Sensual, earthy love poems that formed the basis for the popular movie Il Postino, now in a beautiful gift book perfect for weddings, Valentine's Day, anniversaries, or just to say "I love you!"
Charged with sensuality and passion, Pablo Neruda's love poems are the most celebrated of the Nobel Prize winner's oeuvre, captivating readers with earthbound images and reveling in a fiery re-imagining of the world. Mostly written on the island paradise of Capri (the idyllic setting of the Oscar-winning movie Il Postino), Love Poems embraces the seascapes surrounding the poet and his love Matilde Urrutia, their waves and shores saturated with a new, yearning eroticism.

And when you appear
all the rivers sound
in my body, bells
shake the sky,
and a hymn fills the world.
