Pablo Neruda, born in Chile 1904, is one of the greatest Latin American Poets Neruda's poetic power is alive and mind stretching if you read Spanish well. If not you a stuck with a translation that is both confusing and disjointed. Nathaniel Tarn takes liberties that distort Neruda's world and words. Such is the power of this book.

I suspect that Nathaniel Tarn's translation isn't doing Neruda any favors .

I suspect that Nathaniel Tarn's translation isn't doing Neruda any favors here. For example, Neruda uses the word "sanguinaria" both at page 42 and page 49. At p. 42 we have: Y en el Reloj la sombra sanguinaria del condor cruza como una nave negra. Before visiting Machu Picchu in 1945, Pablo Neruda spent years in Chile's diplomatic service in Southeast Asia, Spain, and Mexico. With his return to South America, and his visit to the Incan ruins high above the Urubamba River, he found a unifying symbol for man's suffering. A lyrical foray into Latin American identity, The Heights of Macchu Picchu explores nature, indigeneity, and death-and the spaces between them.

The Heights of Macchu Picchu is the finest and most famous of Neruda's longer poems and provides the key to his earlier work. It was inspired by his journey to Macchu Picchu, the Peruvian Inca city high in the Andes. Neruda's journey takes on all the symbolic qualities of a personal "venture into the interior" as the poem progresses, exploring both the roots of the poet's identity and the history of Latin America. This translation has been rendered by the distinquished poet Nathaniel Tarn and is presented in a bilingual edition, with the Spanish and English texts on facing pages.

Just got back from Machu Picchu, and this book was highly recommend. Can't wait to start reading it.

Neruda needs no praise from the likes of me. This particular poem, which echoes in my mind, has always been a favorite; this is simply a replacement copy (to replace the one the Golden Retriever puppy read with such interest).

This master work of Chilean author, Pablo Neruda, enables the reader to quickly move back and forth between Spanish and English. Neruda's focus on indigenous people remains a significant influence in the Andean countries.

Great poem, great price, nice slim volume, but the entire Spanish text is in italics for some reason. You might be fine with it, but I found it distracting. Very unfortunate.

This book brought me to my knees. Pablo Neruda at his best. Poetry impeccable, and if you know Spannish, it is right there to supplement the english. The book arrived quickly in impeccable condition. I would recomment this bod to anyone!

Let me begin by stating I adore the poetry of Emily Dickinson. For all those who wrote admiring reviews of The Heights of Macchu Picchu, this statement may help them judge my opinion of this poem by Pablo Neruda. I rather suspect they look down on Emily's poetry because it is easily accessible in contrast to the jumbled contortions of Pablo.

Basically, I found The Heights to be pure drivel - meaningless phrases apparently fashioned to sound portentous but, instead, coming out pretentious. For example, look at the following lines from poem 6.

Tall city of stepped stone, home at long last of whatever earth had never hidden in her sleeping clothes. In you two lineages that had run parallel met where the cradle both of man and light rocked in a wind of thorns. Mother of stone and sperm of condors. High reef of the human dawn. Spade buried in primordial sand.

"Whatever earth had never hidden in her sleeping clothes"? Come on! "Had never hidden in her sleeping clothes"? This kind of phrasing goes nowhere and says nothing. And this is not an isolated example - the whole poem drips with this kind of babble. What a loss!
When I first read Nathaniel Tarn's translation of Pablo Neruda's great poem "The Heights of Macchu Picchu," I was literally stunned. My immediate thoughts were two: incredulity that I had never encountered this masterpiece before, and an overwhelming desire to share it with as many people as I could.
Such is the power of this book. The poem, inspired by the great Chilean poet's visit to the ancient, abandoned city of Macchu Picchu, is presented in a bilingual format; Neruda's Spanish original faces Tarn's English on each two-page spread.
"The Heights of Macchu Picchu" contains lines of poetic language that are both beautiful and thought-provoking. But equally intrinsic to this great work is the author's compassion for the human condition--a compassion which transcends the boundaries of time and culture. Neruda's passionate addresses to the men and women who shed their blood and their tears in the construction of this ancient stone city nearly had me in tears myself.
This is one of those remarkable poems which is pregnant with the fire of prophecy; it reads like a sacred text for the modern age. Neruda's miniature epic is, I believe, one of those works which will abide as a monument of global literature. It is a gift for the entire human family.
