Then Come Back: The Lost Poems of Pablo Neruda

by Pablo Neruda - £9.95  Bloodaxe Books Ltd (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780373607 | ISBN 10: 1780373600

This stunning collection gathers together previously unknown poems found by archivists in boxes kept at the Pablo Neruda Foundation in Chile in 2014.
 
Neruda is renowned for poetry that casts away despair and celebrates living, fired by his belief that there is no unsurmountable solitude. Then Come Back presents Neruda’s mature imagination and writing: signature love poems, odes, anecdotes, and poems of the political imagination. Translator Forrest Gander beautifully renders the eros and heartache, deep wonder and complex wordplay of the original Spanish, which is presented here with full-colour reproductions of the poems in their original composition on scraps of paper, music programmes, a menu, and in notebooks.
 
Then Come Back: The Lost Neruda Poems simultaneously completes and advances the oeuvre of the Nobel Laureate. Discovered during the cataloguing of Neruda’s papers, there are 21 poems in all, together with detailed notes about how they relate to his published work.
