    This book explores Neruda's love and obsession with Easter Island, a land he visited 2 years before his death. Divided into two different perspectives, one of "Men" and one of "The Island," Neruda writes of his desire to be a part of the island, and to have his roots and body engraved into the land's soil. He knows, however, that this could never be, as Man's presence in this land would altar and kill the spirit of The Island. It was really great to read in one sitting; you get the full effect t [...]

    This lovely little book just hums in my hand. It is a perfect example why the physical book will and must survive. I can't imagine the same pleasure interacting with this book as an e-book, missing the velvety smooth pages, the side by side tanslation. This book presents a series of poems, or one long poem, that Neruda wrote near the end of his life as an ode to Easter Island. I've always been intrigued by Easter Island and have read fiction and non-fiction dealing with it as a destination and a [...]

    Beautiful poems about Easter Island. Neruda's unique transitions from the spirit of "the man" to "the island" are jarring and fantastic. Love how the Spanish text and the English translation are side-by-side.

    One of Pablo Neruda's last works, published posthumously. Haunting study of man and nature through his experience and mythologizing of Easter Island. It's bilingual, so if you can, read the Spanish aloud so you can hear the music and rhyme of the original language.

    This book was about Easter Island, which is a Chilean territory (I didn't know this before reading the book). The poems are either titled "Island" or "Men." I liked the book, but not as much as other Neruda books I've read before.

    Poems ripe with natural beauty & consideration of what humans do to the environment.


    Anne

    Dialog between faded, scattered, grand nature and corrupt, clutching, culpable man. "Llegamos hasta lejos, hasta lejos" Compelling, compassionate images.

    Obra póstuma y en ese sentido no tan acabada la idea, pero indiscutiblemente notoria la maestría del gran poeta. Original planteamiento de analogía de la isla de Pascua con la soledad atávica del hombre.

    terrible translation, awkward clumsy english sure you can glean the message of the poem I think ive come to realize william o'daly is not a good translator
