William O’Daly has translated eight books of the late-career and posthumous poetry of Chilean Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda.
In Book of Twilight, we meet Pablo Neruda poised to become one of the most beloved writers of our time. In this first book, Neruda’s voice is recognizable—wildly romantic, musical, bold—fluctuating between formality and rebellion. In William O’Daly’s superb and lyrical translation, this volume awakens a raw, poetic power that heralds genius.
Yarrow and Smoke, the second title in Folded Word Press’s Masters Series, reveals William O’Daly’s ability to infuse human truth with the landscapes that shape it. It is his love song to gray valley and starless river, to High Sierra trails and self-discovery. At the edge of firelight, taste the night wind steeped in yarrow and smoke.
