When the news hit that archivists at the Pablo Neruda foundation had found a box containing 21 previously untranslated poems by the inimitable and amorous Chilean poet, the hearts of many readers did what spring does to the cherry trees. The worry in these situations is that the poems will be bad, but Seattle civic poet Claudia Castro Luna gave voice to a few of them at the Copper Canyon Christmas party last December, and they hold up quite well—he's still got those surreal turns, those surprising images, and that intoxicating tone of wonder and possibility. At McCaw Hall, Copper Canyon Press will give these poems their full English-language debut. Grab your partner—or, better yet, go stag—and get ready to bask in the light of Neruda's hidden flowers.
