  1. Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean writer and politician Neftal Ricardo Reyes Basoalto Neruda assumed his pen name as a teenager, partly because it was in vogue, partly to hide his poetry from his father, a rigid man who wanted his son to have a practical occupation Neruda s pen name was derived from Czech writer and poet Jan Neruda Pablo is thought to be from Paul Verlaine With his works translated into many languages, Pablo Neruda is considered one of the greatest and most influential poets of the 20th century.Neruda was accomplished in a variety of styles ranging from erotically charged love poems like his collection Twenty Poems of Love and a Song of Despair, surrealist poems, historical epics, and overtly political manifestos In 1971 Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature, a controversial award because of his political activism Colombian novelist Gabriel Garc a M rquez once called him the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language On July 15, 1945, at Pacaembu Stadium in S o Paulo, Brazil, he read to 100,000 people in honor of Communist revolutionary leader Lu s Carlos Prestes When Neruda returned to Chile after his Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Salvador Allende invited him to read at the Estadio Nacional before 70,000 people.During his lifetime, Neruda occupied many diplomatic posts and served a stint as a senator for the Chilean Communist Party When Conservative Chilean President Gonz lez Videla outlawed communism in Chile, a warrant was issued for Neruda s arrest Friends hid him for months in a house basement in the Chilean port of Valpara so Later, Neruda escaped into exile through a mountain pass near Maihue Lake into Argentina Years later, Neruda was a close collaborator to socialist President Salvador Allende.Neruda was hospitalized with cancer at the time of the Chilean coup d tat led by Augusto Pinochet Three days after being hospitalized, Neruda died of heart failure Already a legend in life, Neruda s death reverberated around the world Pinochet had denied permission to transform Neruda s funeral into a public event However, thousands of grieving Chileans disobeyed the curfew and crowded the streets Neruda s funeral became the first public protest against the Chilean military dictatorship.

  1. I have been mesmerized with the persona of Pablo Neruda since I saw the film version of Postman, The Il Postino back in high school In that depiction, Neruda is an exiled poet living in Italy during the rise of Mussolini while there befriends his mail carrier in a charming story Later, having read many novels and memoirs by Isabel Allende, I have been privileged to learn of her Chilean perspective of Neruda as the nation s poet laureate, especially during Pinochet s 1973 coup d tat Yet, until no [...]

  2. When I got tired of copying love poems from the Chinese and Japanese into urgent, wretched note cards to lovers who were unattainable and I m a genius at finding unattainable characters to pine after that s when I turned to Pablo Neruda He s even better than Asian poets at crafting throbbing, passionate, wounded phrases of affection I love you as the plant that never bloomsbut carries in itself the light of hidden flowers thanks to your love a certain solid fragrencerisen from the earth, lives d [...]

  4. I really sometimes wonder if I love right, love correctly, or if I love at all and am not just miming what I think, what I want, I feel For me I love all at once, I fall very fast, but rarely I will go long loveless periods through life, happy and unthinking of what passions I am missing, unenvious of people paired in love, like a bright new boat at sea not thinking at all of the harbor And suddenly in a lightning flash un coup de foudre , I am whipped up into a maelstrom of passion and anguish [...]

  7. I do not love you as if you were salt rose, or topaz,or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,in secret, between the shadows and soul.I love you as the plant that never bloomsbut carries in itself the light of hidden flowers thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.I love without knowing how, or when, or from where.I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride So I love you be [...]

  12. Amo il pezzo di terra che tu sei,perch delle praterie planetariealtra stella non ho Non si pu fare a meno di tremare di fronte a una visione dell a come quella di Neruda totalizzante Nei suoi versi, il sentimento quanto riduttiva mi sembra adesso questa parola amoroso diventa soverchiante, inebriante, conquistatore, panico perch diventa tutto terra, cielo, mare, colomba e geografia E il lettore amante non pu far altro che chiudere gli occhi e inchinarsi.

  13. Is the rose naked,Or is that her only dress You won t believe how beautiful the images these two short lines conjure in my head, intricate rose blooms, luscious, red petals spinning in the dark, red folds of silk, dragging on the floor to the dark chambers of a secret lover.There are lone cemeteries,tombs full of soundless bones,the heart threading a tunnel,a dark, dark tunnel like a wreck we die to the very core,as if drowning at the heartor collapsing inside from skin to soulNow that is just s [...]

  15. I m willing to admit that it s possible that other people in the world have been as in love with someone as Pablo Neruda was, but no one has ever expressed it so beautifully or ardently With the eloquence and passion of a hundred poets, Neruda crafts lines that honor love so well that most people don t even know that love could BE so consuming or so light, so natural or so still What Pablo Neruda does for love poetry and for all poetry, for that matter is a gift to the world Muchas gracias, Seno [...]

  17. Probably my most favorite poet of contemporary times Neruda uses language and nature to bring out the truthfulness of beauty, desire, love, and lust The honesty and comparisons of love to simple and pure things in nature makes me wish I knew spanish and could read his writings in his native language.He also divides his sonnets into the catagories of morning, afternoon, and night, with each infiltrating new or different dimensions of love Not always happy or unrealalistic, Neruda is honest in his [...]

  25. Matilde, where are you Down there I noticed, under my necktie and just above the heart, a certain pang of grief between the ribs, you were gone that quickly I needed the light of your energy, I looked around, devouring hope I watched the void without you that is like a house, nothing left but tragic windows Out of sheer taciturnity the ceiling listens to the fall of the ancient leafless rain, to feathers, to whatever the night imprisoned so I wait for you like a lonely house till you will see me [...]
