The Stones of the Sky
The Stones of the Sky


This suite of thirty poems is Neruda's last love song to the Earth. When he wrote these poems he was dying of cancer, and as the title suggests he addresses not ordinary stones, but cosmic ones: stones that reconcile immobile permanence and the clarity of spiritual flight. When the poet meets his crystallized self, the encounter "takes on an eerie brilliance"-The Village Voice. Bilingual with introduction.

"An excellent bilingual editon."-Choice
