Venture of an Infinite Man
by Pablo Neruda
Here is a beautiful new bilingual edition of Neruda' 1926 epic poem, a late departure from his more commonly known love poems. Minimal and delicate, experimental and dream-like, this work was considered by the artist himself to be one of his most important works.
