Gone But Never Forgotten


PABLO NERUDA
(July 12, 1904 – September 23, 1973)


Was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet, diplomat and politician Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He chose his pen name after Czech poet Jan Neruda.


In 1971 Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature.



Neruda became known as a poet while still a teenager. He wrote in a variety of styles including surrealist poems, historical epics, overtly political manifestos, a prose autobiography, and erotically-charged love poems such as the ones in his 1924 collection Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.

Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez once called him:
"THE GREATEST POET OF THE 20th CENTURY IN ANY LANGUAGE"


(His books has been translated in more than 40 languages)
