William O'daly: The Road To Isla Negra says
This evening brings noted poet and translator William O’Daly back to an Elliott Bay stage he has graced many times before, most notably as translator of eight volumes of Pablo Neruda poetry that Copper Canyon Press has published into English over the decades. He is here tonight with hs own poetic take on Neruda, the life and work, with The Road to Isla Negra (Folded Word). This beautiful volume includes striking photos by Galen Garwood. William O’Daly will be back with another Neruda translation down the road, working on Neruda’s very first collection of poetry, Crepulusario, to be published by Copper Canyon Press.

“William O’Daly has been a patient and dedicated poet-translator for forty years. In these poems paying homage to Pablo Neruda, sweetness meets strength as his tender and muscular music leads us on. I welcome these poems with unfettered enthusiasm and gratitude.” — Sam Hamill
