Canto General
by Pablo Neruda
Translated by Mariela Griffor
Edited by Jeffrey Levine

“The greatest poet of the twentieth century in any language.”
—Gabriel García Márquez, of Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda’s epic poem Canto General is a prodigious work that scrolls out like the chronicle of a journey through the Americas. In his most audacious and ambitious achievement, Neruda depicts history as a vast, continuous struggle against oppression. Constructed in fifteen parts, and made up of more than fifteen thousand lines, Canto General unfolds in successive epochs, celebrating the flora and fauna and geology of Neruda’s homeland and recounting episodes in the lives of explorers and conquistadors, emperors and dictators, revolutionaries and everyday laborers. Here is Canto General seen afresh, the breathtaking beauty of Neruda’s poetry fully revealed in English, with a new translation for the twenty-first century.

Chilean poet and diplomat Pablo Neruda (July 12, 1904— September 23, 1973), author of nearly forty books, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.

Poems by by Suzanne Parker

(Available in July 1, 2016)

Winner of the Sunken Garden Poetry Award

“A collection of poems that shimmer with a kind of linguistic iridescence, their beauty and power rooted in the sheer intensity of the author’s gaze. What Suzanne Parker is willing to see, what she can open with words, invites the reader to a more electric sense of wakefulness.”
— Tim Seibles

“‘Everything is erotic,’ Suzanne Parker proclaims in Feed, where… readers imbibe a steady beat of hunger mingled with desire in gestures that show us how it feels to perceive fully. In bold conversation with Picasso, Matisse, Gauguin, and Miró, these poems offer language that crackles with sensuality and immediacy. A lyrical feast.”
— Sharon Dolin
