Neruda was a Chilean poet who is most known for his romantic works, but also penned autobiographies, historical events and poems in a variety of style including surrealism. Neruda’s life was complicated, he often wrote his craft on napkins, receipts and scrap paper due to his time spent in hiding and eventually exile. As did his work…until now.
Some folks at Copper Canyon Press have the dream to bring Neruda’s first book to life! They were successful back in 2015 when they managed to not only discover some of his lost work, but also new content that had never been published. The ‘Book of Twilight’ (translated and published for the first time) by Pablo Neruda looks to be in the works offering goodies of letterpress poems. The project still needs backers, but we wish them all the luck in bringing this treasure to life for the public to enjoy.
