Book Summary

More than 30 years after Pablo Neruda's death, his poetry continues to be read all over the world. His range is vast, from the lyricism of Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair to the epic grandeur of the Canto General. Few Nobel laureates have enjoyed such enduring popularity.

In this first authoritative biography to appear in English, Adam Feinstein draws on revealing interviews with the poet's closest friends, acquaintances, and surviving relatives, as well as newly discovered documents. He follows Neruda's life from a sickly childhood in Chile to political engagement and literary fame, until his death in 1973, within days of the coup that brought Pinochet to power. This biography is the first full and lively portrait of the man whose dramatic times, dynamic poetry, commitment to social justice, and joie de vivre make his an iconic life of the twentieth century.
