William O'Daly's poetic response to four decades spent translating Pablo Neruda's poetry takes readers on a pilgrimage to Don Pablo's home by the sea. Time breaks free from linear constraints amidst O'Daly's lines that intertwine spiritual and physical planes. Paired with Galen Garwood's stunning photographs, the tension between what was, what is, and what could be makes this collaboration between two masters a must-read. "William O'Daly has been a patient and dedicated poet-translator for forty years. In these poems paying homage to Pablo Neruda, sweetness meets strength as his tender and muscular music leads us on. I welcome these poems with unfettered enthusiasm and gratitude." - Sam Hamill, author of Measured by Stone (Curbstone Books, 2007) and co-founder of Copper Canyon Press.
