Pablo Neruda : Chile's master poet by Pablo Neruda( Visual )

2 editions published in 1995 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chile's Pablo Neruda was a quiet man who became the representative voice of millions. More than a writer, Neruda was inspired to serve his country and promote social reform. Through his poetry and speeches he not only stirred the passion of fellow poets, but also roused the political consciousness of the world. Believing poetry should express the political struggles of the people, Neruda's words on love, nature and politics reflected both the pleasant and harsh realities of everyday life. Neruda was not afraid to share his belief in Communism and his radical ideas on social reform, though these unpopular views caused him to be exiled for a time. Actively involved in politics, he held various political posts throughout his lifetime and ran unsuccessfully for the presidency of Chile. Through it all, Neruda's moving poetry showed his passion for the written word and his commitment to political reform in Latin America. For his opinions he was persecuted. For his poetic achievement he is esteemed. - Container
