Review: Still Another Day by Pablo Neruda

This is the first Pablo Neruda book I’ve read and I have to say I’ve come away impressed. Translations often come across as slightly stilted but perhaps thanks to William O’Daly Neruda’s nuanced descriptions simply shimmer and the imagery is always original, the phrasing deft. If this is not even one of Neruda’s greatest poems then all I can say is point me in the direction of his greatest. Maybe I’ll re-evaluate my stance on this.

Final Grade: A+
