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 reimagining 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.

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was born in the town of Parral in Chile. He received numerous prestigious awards for his work, including the International Peace Prize in 1950 and the Lenin Peace Prize in 1953. In 1971 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Two years later he died in Santiago, Chile, probably a victim of the Pinochet government. Pinochet denied permission for Neruda's funeral to be made a public event. Thousands of grieving Chileans disobeyed the curfew, however, and crowded the streets of Santiago.

''It is difficult to find an analogue for the sustained passion and gentleness communicated in this absolutely stunning apotheosis of the poetry of sexual love...Matilde Urrutia deserves to enter history in the company of Petrarch's Laura and Dante's Beatrice.'' --Library Journal
''Neruda is a monster. Like all great epic monsters, when he's not bellowing, preaching or lamenting, he is capable of amazing delicacy and contained passion, especially in the lyrical poems - sonnets, romances, and free-verse 'odes' - which are netted in this book. It dazzlingly distills a profound, tender imagination.'' --Michael Schmidt
''The poems today remain as urgently gorgeous as freshly picked flowers.'' --Daily Telegraph
