About Author

  1. Pablo Neruda Donald Devenish Walsh says:
    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.

    Love, a questionhas destroyed you.Love, Desire, Furies, it is in these elemental emotions Pablo Neruda has cast in verse his and the life of his beloved They met at the beginning of Time when Big Bang was taking shape in their souls and when those various elements came together, guided by violent forces, in a restive arrangement to from their bodies out which arose a desire of self preservation in perpetual conflict with the vein of self abnegation In a way these poems represent the struggle of [...]

    Undoubtedly some of the finest love poems ever written and probably Neruda s masterpiece my opinion I want you to knowone thing.You know how this is if I lookat the crystal moon, at the red branchof the slow autumn at my window,if I touchnear the firethe impalpable ashor the wrinkled body of the log,everything carries me to you,as if everything that exists aromas, light, metals,were little boats that sailtoward those isles of yours that wait for me.Well, now,if little by little you stop loveing [...]

    Final 5.00Pocas personas pueden hablar del amor como lo hace Pablo, pocas personas pueden decir tanto con tan poco como lo hace Pablo, y pocas personas pueden hacer que te cagues con tanta elegancia como lo hace Pablo Hablar del amor de tantas maneras diferentes, que la palabra abstracto queda diminuta para describir el sentimiento que te deja Pablo con sus razonamientos, y tras de eso te hace replantearte Qu MIERDA ES EL AMOR y para acabar siempre te deja sus criticas sociales que desmoronan a [...]

    I ve read beautiful things from Pablo Neruda, but I can t say I enjoyed this one and how he connected everything with Nature and things surrounding it Not that I don t like that kind of poetry I just didn t enjoy the way he put things together.There is one poem I loved, though El Monte Y El R o En mi patria hay un monte En mi patria hay un r o Ven conmigo La noche al monte sube El hambre baja al r o Ven conmigo Qui nes son los que sufren No s , pero son m os Ven conmigo No s , pero me llaman y m [...]

    I love Neruda, but will someone please make an announcement that his poems aren t really appropriate to be read in wedding ceremonies Unless the groom is a philandering possessive romantic, which probably shouldn t come out at the wedding, anyway And while spreading the word about Neruda, please mention that black and white are both inappropriate dress colors for guests and mothers of the bride or groom, for that matter.

    I wish my Spanish was good enough to appreciate Neruda IN Spanish I love the earthy, populist quality of his love poems His poems, for reasons I can t fully articulate, resonate with me All poets should be rabid political southpaws writing erotic love letters to girls, mountains rivers.

  11. John says:
    When I was a young man, I picked up this volume of Neruda s poetry I was around 20 years old so far as I can remember , and I was trying to widen my worldview I remember reading Neruda s poems and wanting desperately wanting to find something deep and meaningful in them I dove in relentlessly, fanning through the book and pulling them out in random fashion My mind devoured them eagerly My mind found nothing in the poems that it responded to.Recently I have decided to revisit some books that I re [...]
