Description

They foreground the natural world, and their curiosity transcends all logic; and because they are paradoxes and riddles that embrace the limits of our ability to know, they engage with human freedom in the deepest way, removing the burden and constraint that somehow, we are meant to have answers to every question. Many are stupefyingly inane, or have answers that were very straightforward and easily justifiable to me. In scenes of expansive constellations, dancing waves, and interwoven roots, Valdivia’s art evokes the interconnectedness of the natural world. Compiled throughout his life and published a year after his death in 1973, Neruda's thoughtful and playful questions are well known in Latin American literature. Illustrator Paloma Valdivia shares the same homeland of Chile as Neruda, and her art gorgeously reveals the geography of his poems, bringing to life the landscapes in which Neruda composed his Book of Questions.

Questions can help us obtain a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in when crafted and reflected upon correctly. This illustrated volume features selections from the esteemed Chilean poet’s series of 316 questions with no set answers, but with a universe of possible responses. The imprint was DC’s home for mature tales that were often horror-themed or otherwise dark in nature. Because picture books are for everyone, this book would easily fit in a secondary or university classroom, whether discussing poetry, creative writing, or even philosophy.

The Book of Questions/Libro de las preguntas would be a beautiful gift volume for a bilingual family, or for a child who loves to ask questions. Or should you voluntarily put in a little bit more effort into your answers, like your brother does? I see many don't agree with me but I looked at questions that made strange assumptions or gave an incomplete premise, or an absurd premise and mostly shook my head.

Book of Questions,” written by beloved Chilean poet and Nobel Prize winner Neruda, was completed just months before his death in 1973, and is his last great work of poetry. When your mind is stuck repeating the same lame questions day in and day out: Why is my life so hard? It’s good news that Neruda’s question poems (39 of the original 74) have been freshly translated into English by Sara Lissa Paulson and presented for the first time in picture book form, with stylized, dreamlike illustrations by the Chilean artist Paloma Valdivia—English on one side of the page, Spanish on the other.Whether you use it as a tool for self discovery, or as a provocative way to stimulate conversation, this book constantly challenges attitudes, morals, beliefs-and it challenges you. Intriguing questions with no answers make up this oversize dual-language volume by two Chilean creators, featuring Neruda’s sophisticated musings.

A lot of these questions make you understand yourself, what's important to you, your values, what drives you to do what you do, and many more things you will be able to realize about yourself after reading this book. Sixty of the original 316 questions penned by the inimitable Chilean poet Pablo Neruda perch on vibrant landscapes solo, in pairs, or in trilling triplets. If you are looking for some unconventional questions to pose to a child in your life, consider the new picture book adaptation of Pablo Neruda’s Book of Questions. Vertigo Comics, an imprint of DC Comics, is being retired in 2020 after a 27 year run of groundbreaking comics. Given two equally terrifying alternatives as presented in several of these questions, which one would you choose and how would you live with the consequences?

A poor condition book can still make a good reading copy but is generally not collectible unless the item is very scarce. The never-endingly interesting topic of sex- Would you be willing to give up sex for a year if you knew it would give you a much deeper sense of peace than you now have? The questions themselves, mostly arranged as couplets, have no answers and often imaginative premises: ‘Who shouted for joy / when the color blue was born? Whether you use it as a tool for self-discovery or as a provocative way to stimulate conversation, this book constantly challenges attitudes, orals, beliefs--and it challenges you.

His interests lie in the scientific and evolutionary as well as ethical, social, and political implications of today’s revolutions in the life sciences and in information technology and computers. This lavish volume includes excerpts from Neruda’s Libro de las preguntas in the original Spanish alongside new English translations by Paulson. While reading this book, its not really about finding answers to the questions in it, but rather just initiating the thought process that opens after asking yourself the question.You will find questions of integrity; of sex; of what you would do for money; even things too personal to talk about out loud. Valdivia’s colors are simply stunning: striking red, bold yellow, rich turquoise, and textured grays jump off the bright white and deep black backgrounds. This book provides gentle, playful and easy-to-understand answers to 50 common questions about the wonderful.
