In his long and prolific life as a writer, Pablo Neruda assumed a great variety of masks. He is consistently, however, a poet who sustains the worth of the individual vision, whether that vision be personal, political, or mythic. He is also a poet of the earth and of the common man who resides on it. Concrete images and metaphors from nature predominate in his writing. The character woven into most of his poems is Pablo Neruda himself, a man of passion and compassion who searches into life’s mysteries.
