Overview

Un convincente retrato biográfico de una de las figuras más fascinantes e influyentes en la historia de América Latina, Pablo Neruda. 

Pocos poetas han capturado la imaginación mundial como Pablo Neruda. En su país natal, Chile, como en toda América Latina y en muchas otras partes del mundo, su nombre y su legado se han convertido casi en un sinónimo de movimientos de liberación, y con el lenguaje del amor erótico.

Este libro es el producto de quience años de investigación por Mark Eisner, escritor, traductor y director de documentales. El libro describe vívidamente su vida, prosa intensa y creencias fervientes en la «obligación del poeta» de usar la poesía para el bien social. Combina tres ámbitos principales de la vida de Neruda: su poesía aclamada mundialmente; su participación política; y su tumultuosa e incluso controversial vida personal; formando una narrativa coherente de intimidad y amplitud.

Los acontecimientos fascinantes de la vida de Neruda se intercalan el análisis profundo de Eisner acerca de los poemas, tanto como obras de arte y como reflejo de la vida y época de Neruda. El resultado es un libro que trae a la luz la fascinante historia de la vida de Neruda de una manera nueva, que ofrece una atractiva versión narrativa de la vida y las obras de Neruda, apoyada en una investigación exhaustiva, pero diseñado para presentar esta colosal figura literaria a un público más amplio.

About the Author

Mark Eisner is a writer, translator, and documentary filmmaker. Neruda: The Poet’s Calling is the product of fifteen years of in-depth research, including many primary interviews with members of Neruda’s intimate circle, who offered rare insights into this mysterious public figure’s life.

Eisner is the editor of The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems (City Lights, 2004), which since its publication has consistently been the bestselling edition of Neruda’s poetry in the U.S. He served as the principal literary translator for that edition, which also included translations by Robert Hass, Forrest Gander, and Stephen Mitchell, as well as an introduction by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

Eisner is producing a documentary about Neruda, slated to appear in early 2018 with the support of Latino Public Broadcasting. An initial, short version of the documentary, narrated by Isabel Allende, received a Latin American Studies Association Award of Merit.

He is writing an introduction for the first-ever English translation of Neruda’s Venture of the Infinite Man. He is also also the translator of Tina Escaja’s book-length poem Free Fall / Caída Libre (Fomite Press, 2015), and co-editor of an anthology of Latin American Poetry in Resistance forthcoming in Spring of 2017.

Mark Eisner is a sought-after speaker on the life and work of Pablo Neruda, at venues ranging from embassies to universities, both nationally and internationally. He holds a Masters in Latin American Studies from Stanford University, where he has also served as a Visiting Scholar.
