Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> A career-spanning volume, charting the Nobel laureate's work in the ode form <br> <br> <br> Pablo Neruda was a master of the ode, which he conceived as an homage to just about everything that surrounded him--from an artichoke to the clouds in the sky, from the moon to his own friendship with Federico García Lorca, from the seasons to his favorite places in Chile. He was in his late forties when he committed himself to writing an ode a week and in the end produced a total of 225, which are dispersed throughout his varied oeuvre. This bilingual volume, edited by Ilan Stavans, the distinguished translator and scholar of Latin American literature, gathers all the odes together for the first time in any language. Rendered into English by an assortment of accomplished translators that includes Philip Levine, Paul Muldoon, Mark Strand, and Margaret Sayers Peden, collectively they read like the personal diary of a man in search of meaning who sings to life itself, to our connections with one another, and to the place we have in nature and the cosmos. All the Odes is a lasting statement on the role of poetry as a lightning rod during tumultuous times.</p>

Library Journal Review

Here, appearing in one place for the first time, are all 250 odes (including some 70 previously untranslated) written by Nobel Prize-winner Neruda, possibly the best-selling foreign-language poet of all time in the United States. Although this anthology features 20 translators, including Margaret Sayers Peden and Ken Krabbenhoft, nearly half of the translations are by Stavans, a Latin Americanist who provides an introduction and identifies obscure references.ÅAs a translator Stavans claims to be a purist, and his purism can sometimes lead to awkwardly literal phraseologies (e.g., "From how many places/ disseminated across the geography/ light from here underachieved its elevation/ in triumphant unity"). Most of Neruda's odes concern ordinary things, such as a shoe, a lemon, or a cat; some celebrate places such as Ceylon or names on the map of Venezuela; still others are addressed to individuals such as Federico Garcia Lorca, Walt Whitman, whom Neruda recognizes as his greatest poetic influence,Åand Paul Robeson, who "broke the silence of the rivers/ when they were dumb / because of the blood they carried." VERDICTÅReaders of poetry can't afford to miss this.-Jack Shreve, Allegany Coll. of Maryland, Cumberland (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
