Pablo Neruda's lost poemsârecently discovered in his archive to the delight of readers and scholarsâcomprise this remarkable and essential volume.
Originally composed on napkins, playbills, receipts, and notebooks, Neruda's lost poems are full of eros and heartache, complex wordplay and deep wonder. Presented with the Spanish text, full-color reproductions of handwritten poems, and dynamic English translations, Then Come Back: The Lost Neruda simultaneously completes and advances the oeuvre of the world's most beloved poet.
Crossing the sky I near
the red ray of your hair.
Of earth and wheat I am and as I close-in
your fire kindles itself
inside me and the rocks
and flour ignite.
That's why my heart
expands and rises
into bread for your mouth to devour,
and my blood is wine poured for you.
You and I are the land with its fruit.
Bread, fire, blood and wine
make up the earthly love that sears us.
