Ben Belitt writes, ""This volume-my fifth-extends and deepens a preoccupation I have had with the visible and invisible manifestations of people, places, and things. It offers a variety of poems of formal and textural density and, in addition, a system of 'doublings' and 'solitudes' whose oppositions express the drama of reality and appearance.""

This superb bilingual anthology highlights the posthumous legacy of Pablo Neruda, the great Chilean poet and Nobel laureate, who left a vasty body of unpublished work when he died in 1973. Ben Belitt, a distinguished poet in his own right, is widely regarded as the leading translator of Neruda into English. Here has given us a Neruda as fecund and engaged as ever, ceaselessly spinning the strands of his great, seamless life's work. --Grove Press[from the library of Elizabeth Ballantyne]

This scribe, my hand : the complete poems of Ben Belitt by Ben Belitt( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a lifetime's achievement by one of America's outstanding poets of the twentieth century.

A poet of abundance and sometimes carnivalesque riotousness, Belitt also calls to mind the intensity and eruptiveness of Hopkins, the double passion for the infinite and the empirical exemplified by Neruda, and the lustrous word-painting associated with Keatsian Romanticism. But as these diverse predecessors suggest, Belitt is altogether an original, whose derivation is as multiple as his figuration
