the world is full of howevers, of unfounded fears and pain, yet we must recognize that on salted bread or next to this or that inequity the vegetables, when they weren't burnt, continued flourishing and sharing and continued their green work. Read full review

About the author (1992)

Pablo Neruda (1904-73), one of the renowned poets of the 20th Century, was born in Ferral, Chile. He shared the World Peace Prize with Paul Robeson and Pablo Picasso in 1950, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for his poetry in 1971. Colombian novelist Gabriel Garca Mrquez once called him "the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language." Neruda always wrote in green ink as it was his personal color of hope. Neruda was hospitalized in 1973 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. Neruda owned three houses in Chile; today they are all open to the public as museums: La Chascona in Santiago, La Sebastiana in Valparaso, and Casa de Isla Negra in Isla Negra, where he and Matilde Urrutia are buried.
