Pablo Neruda, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, finished writing The Captain’s Verses in 1952 while in exile on the island of Capri―the paradisiacal setting for the blockbuster film Il Postino (The Postman). Surrounded by sea, sun, and Capri’s natural splendors, Neruda addressed these poems to his lover Matilde Urrutia before they were married, but he didn’t publish them publicly until 1963. This complete collection has become a classic for love-struck readers around the world―passionately sensuous and exploding with all the erotic energy of a new love.

About the Author

Pablo Neruda (1904–1973) was born in the town of Parral in Chile. He received numerous prestigious awards for his work, including the International Peace Prize in 1950 and the Lenin Peace Prize in 1953. In 1971 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Two years later he died in Santiago, Chile, probably a victim of the Pinochet government. Pinochet denied permission for Neruda’s funeral to be made a public event. Thousands of grieving Chileans disobeyed the curfew, however, and crowded the streets of Santiago.
