Pablo Neruda's most famous long poem, with the English translations and original Spanish presented side by side.
The Heights of Macchu Picchu is the finest and most famous of Neruda's longer poems and provides the key to his earlier work. It was inspired by his journey to Macchu Picchu, the Peruvian Inca city high in the Andes. Neruda's journey takes on all the symbolic qualities of a personal venture into the interior as the poem progresses, exploring both the roots of the poet's identity and the history of Latin America.
