Join us to celebrate Pablo Neruda’s birthday!
Pablo Neruda was born on this day, in 1904 in Chile. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971 and died in 1973. He was a poet and political activist. Gabriel García Márquez once called him “the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language”.
He was close to Allende, the elected leader of Chile who was overthrown and murdered in a coup by the armed forces.
Neruda’s best known work in the UK is probably Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair
