Then Come Back: The Lost NerudaThen Come Back: The Lost Neruda by Pablo Neruda

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Twenty-one previously unpublished poems discovered by the Neruda estate. Any book like this is always questionable, as the translator points out, as it could simply be notes or ideas marketed as lost work, but that's clearly not the case here. While Neruda may not have felt these poems complete and a couple of them indicate that by ending in commas, the poems are beautiful and touch on Neruda's themes. The book includes the poems in both English and the original Spanish, along with some scans of some poems in Neruda's own handwriting. A very worthy addition to Neruda's oeuvre and highly recommended.
