Then Come Back: The Lost Neruda Poems with Forrest Gander & Rocío Ferreira

Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda’s lost poems, originally composed on napkins, playbills, receipts, and notebooks, were recently discovered in his archive to the delight of readers and scholars. Copper Canyon Press has now published a volume of the poems, translated into English by award-winning poet Forrest Gander and presented along with the Spanish text and full-color reproductions of handwritten poems. Gander joins Latin Americanist Rocío Ferreira, Associate Professor and Spanish Program Director in the Department of Modern Languages at DePaul University for a bilingual presentation of the Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet.

Cosponsored with Copper Canyon Press.
