From Library Journal:

Neruda (the 1971 Nobel Prize winner) wrote these passionate and imaginative sonnets in 1955-57 for Matilde Urrutia, his third wife. Divided into four lush sectionsMorning, Afternoon, Evening, and Nightthey mingle the pure ardor of the Song of Solomon with the extravagant conceits of Renaissance lyricism. Throughout, Matilde is the speaker's erotic microcosm``Kiss by kiss I travel your little infinity,/your borders, your rivers, your tiny villages''but the mountainous terrain of Neruda's ``savage homeland'' lends a colorful surrealism to the lovers' intimacy. This capably translated work would enhance any collection of contemporary Latin American poetry. Frank Allen, Assoc. Dean, Continuing Education, Allentown Coll., Center Valley, Pa.
