“Laughter is the language of the soul,” Pablo Neruda said. Among the most lasting voices of the most tumultuous (in his own words, “the saddest”) century, a witness and a chronicler of its most decisive events, he is the author of more than thirty-five books of poetry and one of Latin America’s most revered writers, the emblem of the engaged poet, an artist whose heart, always with the people, is literally consumed by passion. His work, oscillating from epic meditations on politics and history to intimate reflections on animals, food, and everyday objects, is filled with humor and affection. This bilingual selection of more than fifty of Neruda’s best poems, edited and with an introduction by the distinguished Latin American scholar Ilan Stavans and brilliantly translated by an array of well-known poets, also includes some poems previously unavailable in English. I Explain a Few Things distills the poet’s brilliance to its most essential and illuminates Neruda’s commitment to using the pen as a calibrator for his age. Pablo Neruda (1904–73) was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1971. His books include Residence on Earth, Canto General, Extravagaria, and Isla Negra. Ilan Stavans is Lewis-Sebring Professor in Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College. "Laughter is the language of the soul," Pablo Neruda said.

"Perhaps the most popular modern poet in the world, the Chilean-born Neruda won the Nobel Prize for an enormous body of verse that includes introspective lyrics of love and lust; sinuously enthusiastic elemental odes to artichokes, watermelon, salt, Walt Whitman and the human eye; declamations in favor of the labor movement, the Communist Party and the working people of any nation; and involuted late poems of self-doubt. Perhaps no serious writer of verse since Whitman has combined so much scholarly attention with so much enthusiasm in a broad international public . . . Memoirist, critic and translator Stavans has culled this useful portable volume, with its facing-page English and Spanish."—Publishers Weekly “Stavans’ objective in this bilingual selection is smaller if no less ambitious: ‘to distill the poet’s exuberance to its most essential’ . . . This is a hefty task: Neruda’s collected works total some six thousand pages, and Stavans admits in the introduction that Neruda ‘left us an overdose of bad poetry.’ Still, ‘an unsmoothed Neruda is better than a censored Neruda,’ he contends. ‘To fully appreciate the sublime, it helps to meddle with the unworthy.’ Stavans succeeds in presenting an ‘unsmoothed’ Neruda, who, he argues, is more ideological than the romantic hero moviegoers met in Il Postino.”—Carrie Fountain, Austin American-Statesman "Perhaps the most popular modern poet in the world, the Chilean-born Neruda (1904–1973) won the Nobel Prize for an enormous body of verse that includes introspective lyrics of love and lust; sinuously enthusiastic elemental odes to artichokes, watermelon, salt, Walt Whitman and the human eye; declamations in favor of the labor movement, the Communist Party and the working people of any nation; and involuted late poems of self-doubt. Perhaps no serious writer of verse since Whitman has combined so much scholarly attention with so much enthusiasm in a broad international public: unlike some Latin American peers to whom he paid homage, Neruda even at his most ambitious remained clear in his passions. Memoirist, critic and translator Stavans has culled this useful portable volume, with its facing-page English and Spanish from his far larger (1,040 pages) Poetry of Pablo Neruda (2003), while adding a few translations not included there: translators include Robert Bly, W.S. Merwin and Stavans himself. A particular attraction is Scottish poet Alastair Reid's version of Autumn Testament, Neruda's mid-career retrospect: I've been a great flowing river, the poet asserts, with hard ringing stones, with clear night-noises,/ with dark day-songs."—Publishers Weekly

Pablo Neruda gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Dichter der Weltliteratur. Mit „20 Liebesgedichte und ein Lied der Verzweiflung“ eroberte er die Herzen der Leser weit über die Grenzen Südamerikas hinaus. Vierzig Jahre nach Nerudas Tod wurden nun 21 Gedichte im Nachlass des Nobelpreisträgers entdeckt - darunter auch sechs neue Liebesgedichte. In »Dich suchte ich« besingt Neruda die Liebe und den Schmerz der Trennung, er erzählt von Chile, von der Natur seines Heimatlandes, vom Reisen. Verse, spontan zu Papier gebracht auf Zetteln, Menükarten, Konzertprogrammen, wie die diesem Band beigefügten Faksimiles zeigen. In diesen erst vor wenigen Jahren entdeckten Gedichten begegnen wir einem der wichtigsten lateinamerikanischen Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts auf dem Höhepunkt seines Schaffens.

Tagores bekanntestes Bühnenstck ist das 1912 erschienene Drama Dakghar (Das Postamt), das als ein Meisterwerk des symbolischen Theaters gilt. Von der Fachkritik wird das Stück häufig als ein Rückblick Tagores auf seine Kindheit gelesen. Im Gegensatz zu seinem anderen Meisterwerk, dem 1910 veröffentlichten Drama Raja (Der König der dunklen Kammer), kommt Das Postamt ohne folkloristische Liedeinlagen und tiefgründig-rätselhafte Dialoge aus. Im Mittelpunkt der Handlung steht Amal, ein sterbenskranker Junge, der von seinem Pflegevater gezwungen wird, in einem kleinen Zimmer zu leben, damit er nicht den gefährlichen Einflüssen der Umwelt ausgeliefert ist. Amal gefällt das nicht. Er fühlt sich wie ein Verbrecher, den man eingekerkert hat. Von einem Stuhl aus, den er an das Fenster gestellt hat, blickt Amal auf die Straße und verfolgt das bunte Treiben der Menschen. Mit seinen Blicken sucht er die Freiheit, das Leben, die Welt und die Natur. Manchmal gelingt es ihm, mit einem der Menschen, die an seinem Fenster vorübergehen, zu sprechen. Er klammert sich an jedes Wort, das ihm zufliegt, nimmt am Schicksal der Menschen teil und genießt in seiner Phantasie alle Freiheiten des Lebens. (Zitat aus buecher-wiki.de) Die Serie "Meisterwerke der Literatur" beinhaltet die Klassiker der deutschen und weltweiten Literatur in einer einzigartigen Sammlung.

In awarding the book-length poem Caída Libre (Free Fall) the Government of the Canary Islands' prestigious 2003 Dulce María Loynaz International Poetry Prize, the jury highlighted the "authenticity and force in the language", reflecting the process of a pregnancy with a "hard, steeled language," a language, though, "not incisive, but very realistic and extraordinarily beautiful." "In a masterful form," the poem, "passes from the plane of the intimate to that of the almost-epic, using a figure not found commonly in poetry: the chronicle of a pregnancy." (Press notes from December 10th, 2003).But Caída Libre registers much more beyond that chronicle. Conception, delivery, and maternity unite in an epic of the derangement and celebration at the end of the millennium in New York City. And then shortly afterwards, the catastrophe of the Twin Towers with its agony and irreversible transformation of values: the fall of the West's formulation in the previous millennium. Caída Libre is a brilliant and fundamental book to understand ourselves in our current century, in its conflicts and atrocities, but also in its soundness and revelations. The importance of its read is amplified by its Hispanic perspective and gender, and this bilingual edition opens up its accessibility. The book is currently being taught at universities around the globe, and has been included in important critical studies.
