Canto General.
Mexico: Talleres Graficos de la Nacion, 1950. First edition of the Nobel Prize-winning author's masterpiece. Folio, original cloth, pictorial endpapers designed by Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros. One of five hundred copies printed on malinche paper. Signed by Pablo Neruda, illustrators Diego Rivera and David A. Siqueiros. In very good condition with some rubbing to the spine and some light repair to the crown of the spine. Rare and desirable. "Canto General" ("General Song") consists of 15 sections, 231 poems, and more than 15,000 lines. It is the stunning epic of an entire continent and its people. The Canto speaks of the destiny of Latin American peoples and the life of the poet himself. Without question, this is one of the most important and powerful long poems written in the century. "Neruda was a kind of King Midas. Everything he touched turned to poetry," says Gabriel García Márquez, who also considers the Chilean Nobel laureate "the greatest poet of the twentieth century, in any language."
