Selected Odes of Pablo Neruda (Latin American Literature and Culture)
To write easily of straightforward issues was once a role the poet undertook consciously, following his studies within the Spanish Civil conflict, the "social conversion" that resulted from a trip to Macchu Picchu, and the writing of his epic Canto general (California, forthcoming). The odes are prepared briefly, sinuous strains that movement down the web page and attach the poet to the animal, mineral, and vegetable international, to humans and items, and to the panorama of background. "Chile," Neruda as soon as acknowledged in connection with the paintings of sixteenth-century poet Alonso de Ercilla, "was invented by way of a poet." In accepting the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971, he declared that "We [writers from the substantial expanse of the US] are known as upon to fill with phrases the confines of a mute continent, and we turn into inebriated with the duty of telling and naming." The odes mirror what Neruda observed as either a duty and a privilege—the naming and defining of his world.
