Praise for Stephen Mitchell's translation of Rilke:
"Perhaps the most beautiful group of poetic translations this century has produced."
-- Chicago Tribune
"This is, without any doubt, the best English rendering of Rilke. It is as faithful to the original as the translation of poetry can hope to be, faithful not only to its linguistic meaning but to its poetic expressiveness."

Pablo Neruda (1904–1973), uno de los poetas más renombrados del siglo veinte, nació en Parral, Chile. En 1950 compartió el Premio Internacional de la Paz con Paul Robeson y Pablo Picasso, y en 1971 fue galardonado con el Premio Nobel de Literatura.From AudioFile:
Writer and translator Stephen Mitchell has chosen these 49 poems by the beloved Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, celebrations of the senses that succeed at making the commonest things in life complex and luminous. With all poetry, something is lost when the length of the lines, the patterns the words make, are not seen on the page. But something can be gained, too, in the hearing, and Neruda's language, so subtle but accessible, lends itself gracefully to the treatment. Mitchell's voice is light and warm and perfectly pitched, and quiet musical support adds to the pleasure of this lovely audio experience.
