Other personified characters, also addressed, create a deliberate confusion over actor and action for much of the poem. The effect is delirious, if not nightmarish, in places. Neither sex nor poetry can fully satiate the essential desire for infinity or transcendence. Neruda crafts an image that looks like a surrealist exquisite corpse, but is bound up with human apprehension of the world, made strange through a drive to create metaphors and similes out of the objects around us.
Much of this may read like surrealist poetry. Neruda is not simply channelling the subconscious — if that were ever truly possible in writing — but revising and reworking, creating what in structural terms is quite an orderly collection.
His ostensibly surrealist images very often have a literary or real-world corollary, rather than being something just plucked out of the air or the subconscious. But there is an allied susceptibility to the ugly phrase or duff note. Here, in deft versions by Jessica Powell, a new addition to the roster of translators of Neruda into English, the poems appear with the English first and then the Spanish at the back, with identical pagination.
This is partly to damn them with faint praise. These poems are not drafts or alternative versions; they are poems in their own right that, for whatever reason, never made it into print. A frustrating aspect of both original and translation is that the poems do not appear in chronological order; no rationale is given for this in either volume, and only by reading through the endnotes do we discover their sequence.

As the translator, Forrest Gander, acknowledges, not all of the poems were finished. The manuscripts include crossings out, revisions and even sections that are illegible. His compositional method involved breaking up more traditional lines hendecasyllables in particular into shorter phrases to fit into a newspaper column.

There are six love poems — dedicated to his third wife, Matilde Urrutia — and another fifteen poems on general themes. Gander crafts a touching love poem, but one would never know from the translation that the Spanish opens with a series of carefully measured alexandrines. The final line in Spanish has a word that is illegible, but without it this metre returns.

The manuscript, the notes state, was covered in corrections. Poem 4, one of the longest pieces in the collection, features drifting, wandering lines. The lover is linked to the landscape of Chile, with sex as a form of communion with nature. But the anguish and self-doubt of adolescence are gone. Gander is right not to smooth over these potentially jarring repetitions. The rest is a miscellany; the intensity of the amorous verses is lost.
The quality varies, too. The difference from Borges, who staged a number of such encounters, is that this is not a dialogue. The younger self has nothing to say back to the older, established poet.
Can we read Neruda without having to accept the questionable attitudes and inexcusable behaviour? In his best work, the certainty and the ego break down.

- Neruda: el llamado del poeta, de Mark Eisner?
I agreed. And through the wound of his departure, through the hemorrhage of his breaking free, the last I ever felt of solitude, of myself looking through a pane of glass, also slipped away. I was left open, an offering to visitations, to the wind, to presence. Nor intuiting the laws of geometry, counting the beams in your cell like Sor Juana. Another way of being free and human.

Another way of being. Otro modo de ser humano y libre. Otro modo de ser. There is nothing more than ourselves: the couple, two sexes reconciled in a chile, two heads together, not contemplating each other so as not to turn either one into a mirror but staring straight ahead, at the other. The other: mediator, judge, equilibrium of opposites, witness, knot in which what was broken is retied. The other, muteness that begs a voice from the one who speaks and demands the ear of the one who listens. The other. With the other, humanity, dialogue, poetry, begin.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. No hay quejas, ni remilgos en los poemas de esta gran amiga.
Pura altivez. Ella vive su propio exilio desde el momento que fue expulsada de la ingenuidad de la juventud y lo afronta pasivamente. One person found this helpful. Very good book of poems. Emotionally poignant. I liked the variety of feelings conveyed as to what it means to feel nostalgic about one's country of birth.
