In his long life as a poet, Pablo Neruda succeeded in becoming what many poets have aspired to but never achieved: a public voice, a voice not just for the people of his country but for his entire continent. Widely translated, he probably reached more readers than any poet in history; justly so, for, as he often said, his "poet's obligation" was to become a voice for all those who had no voice, an aspiration that stemmed from his long-time commitment to the communist faith. Born in 1904 in the rainy south of Chile, he enjoyed from an early age the luck of attention. One of his first books, Twenty Love Poems, became a bible for lovers in the Spanish language, and confirmed him in his poet's vocation. At the same time he pursued a lifelong career as a diplomat, serving in a series of consular posts in the Far East and Europe. In 1971, while serving as Chilean ambassador to France, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. In a famous essay, On Impure Poetry, Neruda calls for a poetry as impure as old clothes, as a body with its food stains and its shame, with wrinkles, observations, dreams, wakefulness, prophesies, declarations of love and hate, stupidities, shocks, idylls, political beliefs, negations, doubts, affirmations, and taxes. The most comprehensive bilingual collection of Neruda, the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language, (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

Paco Ignacio Taibo II et le roman policier : de la défaite de la justice à la gloire de l'énigme by Michaël Collado ( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The crime novel is the imaginary illustration of a constant victorious justice in its fight against crime and its very relative success in Mexico proves that mexican society cannot be the gathering place of such an ideology. Nevertheless, P. I. Taibo II managed, contrary to historical logic, to reconcile the genre with the country. Through Cosa Fácil, La vida misma and Cuatro manos, an axiological jamming, better suited to collective mexican mentalities, gradually replaces crime novel manicheanism. At the same time, the enigma, following the sterilisation course of the investigation theme, disappears from plots. This phenomenon takes place when the enigmatic structure is getting more intricated. Therefore, Cuatro manos represents the defeat of the justice and the structural quintessence of the enigma. It is an attempt to litterary appropriateness and reorganisation of the destructured vision resulting from postmodern communicational abundance
