৳ 260.00৳ 340.00


Neruda is speculating on death and what life will be like for him after the fact of this thing’s death. There is a spiritual element to this poem and an overall theme of getting on with life after a major loss. The poem carries this element throughout the entire poem, which adds unity and fluidity at the same time.

New Directions celebrates the Pablo Neruda Centennial. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Pablo Neruda’s birth, New Directions is pleased to announce the reissue of a classic work in a timeless translation by Donald D. Walsh and fully bilingual.

The Captain’s Verses was first published anonymously in 1952, some years before Neruda married Matilde Urrutia – the one with “the fire / of an unchained meteor” – to whom he had addressed these poems of love, ecstasy, devotion, and fury. Our bilingual edition is seen by many as the most intimate and passionate volume of Neruda’s love poetry, capturing all the erotic energy of a new love.
