"Cuerpo de mujer, blancas colinas, muslos blancos/ te pareces al mundo en tu actitud de entrega/ Mi cuerpo de labriego salvaje te socava/ y hace saltar el hijo del fondo de la tierra. Predomina una atmosfera melancolica, sombria, que todavia no se desprende de la influencia del modernismo. Publicados en 1924, estos versos, que hablan de un poeta precoz, por momentos magistral, siguen traspasando fronteras y generaciones. Una obra que se aprende de memoria, capital en la educacion sentimental de millones de adolescentes y jovenes."

About the author (2002)

Pablo Neruda was born Ricardo Eliecer Neftalí 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 España en el Corazón, 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.
