Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges( )

2 editions published between 1962 and 2008 in Spanish and English and held by 1,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventeen pieces in Ficciones demonstrate the gargantuan powers of imagination, intelligence, and style of one of the greatest writers of this or any other century. Borges sends us on a journey into a compelling, bizarre, and profoundly resonant realm; we enter the fearful sphere of Pascal's abyss, the surreal and literal labyrinth of books, and the iconography of eternal return. More playful and approachable than the fictions themselves are Borges's Prologues, brief elucidations that offer the uninitiated a passageway into the whirlwind of Borges's genius and mirror the precision and potency of his intellect and inventiveness, his piercing irony, his skepticism, and his obsession with fantasy. To enter the worlds in Ficciones is to enter the mind of Jorge Luis Borges, wherein lies Heaven, Hell, and everything in between

Isla Negra : a notebook by Pablo Neruda( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the over one hundred poems contained in Isla Negra, Pablo Neruda fashioned a kind of poetic autobiography in which he set out to explore and gather the various "lives" or "selves" he had left behind him in the huge span of his writing existence. Written in his "autumnal" period, from the vantage point of Isla Negra, the small village on the Pacific coast of Chile which he came to regard as the center of his world, the book reads like a series of notes in which present and past interact, and is perhaps the most self-confronting of all his collections

9 editions published between 1975 and 2001 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pablo Neruda himself regarded Fully Empowered--which first appeared in Spanish in 1962 under the title Plenos poderes--as a particular favorite, in part because it came out of a most fruitful period in his life. These thirty-six poems vary from short, intense lyrics to characteristic Neruda odes to magnificent meditations on the office of poet, including poems that would undoubtedly claim a place in any selection of Neruda's greatest work."--Page 4 of cover

The poems in this collection remind us that love is woven through all life, and that amorous love is only but the tip of such a powerful emotion. This collection presents Neruda at the height of his powers, with some of the most vibrant verses of the twentieth century. --HarperCollins Publishers
