What more auspicious way to celebrate the new millennium than with Pablo Neruda's 2000, translated into English. In these poems Neruda reflects on the destructive role of technology, on the deterioration of the planet's ecological health, and on the brutal oppression of the Third World. But, ultimately, 2000 is a meditation that celebrates humankind's struggle to survive and regenerate itself at the entrance to the second millennium.

About the author (1997)

Pablo Neruda was born Ricardo Eliecer Neftal Reyes Basoalto in Ferral, Chile on July 12, 1904. In 1923 he sold all of his possessions to finance the publication of his first book, Crepusculario (Twilight), which he published under the pseudonym Pablo Neruda. Veinte Poemas de Amor y una Cancion Desesperada (Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair), which was published the following year, made him a celebrity and allowed him to stop his studies to devote himself to poetry. His other works include Espaa en el Corazn, Canto General, Las Uvas y el Viento, and Para Nacer He Nacido. He received numerous awards including the World Peace Prize with Paul Robeson and Pablo Picasso in 1950, the Lenin Peace Prize and the Stalin Peace Prize in 1953, and the Nobel Prize for Literature for his poetry in 1971. He died of leukemia on September 23, 1973.
