This is one of the greatest collections of love poetry ever published. Inspired by Pablo Neruda’s youthful relationships and injected with an expressive eroticism, these poems are as accomplished as they are evocative and sensual. First published in 1924 to international acclaim when Neruda was just nineteen, this book is still adored the world over for being one of the most memorable, intense and romantic works of poetry ever written. It is a work of poetry to be cherished by lovers old and new.
‘The poems today remain as urgently gorgeous as freshly picked flowers’ Carol Ann Duffy.
