Only the shadows know the secrets of closed houses, only...

October 07, 1990

Only the shadows know the secrets of closed houses, only the forbidden wind and the moon that shines on the roof Solo la sombra sabe los secretos de las casas cerradas solo el viento rechazado y en el techo la luna que florece

Pablo Neruda: Absence and Presence (W.W. Norton: $39.95) introduces the Chilean poet verbally and visually: through his own words, presented in Spanish and in translations by Alastair Reid; through the photography of Luis Poirot, whose black-and-white photos record Neruda's last home at Isla Negra and the surrounding fence where Chileans have scratched lines of his poetry; and through the recollections of friends and colleagues.
