Answers to the Book of Questions?

As he was dying, Pablo Neruda wrote his Book of Questions. Very strange questions. Questions like:
Por qué los inmensos aviones
No se pasean con sus hijos?
(Why don't the huge airplanes walk with their children?)
So my question is at two levels:
1. What is the best English scholarship explicating this very strange book, and the best translation of this, since my Spanish is bad?
2. Did anyone write answers to any of the questions? They seem to be designed to be unanswerable, but that never stopped anybody.
