Bly has also established himself as one of the great translators of international poetry into English, with pioneering translations of Pablo Neruda, Antonio Machado, Rainer Maria Rilke, Tomas Transtamer, and Hafez, among many others. The best work of his long and varied translation career appeared recently in The Winged Energy of Delight: Selected Translations. In 2008 his translations of Hafez were published in a volume Angels Knocking on the Tavern Door. Bly's books of prose include Iron John: A Book About Men, A Little Book on the Human Shadow, The Sibling Society and The Maiden King.
