Pablo Neruda

Chilean poet-diplomat, 1904-1973

"Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto, better known by his pen name and, later, legal name Pablo Neruda, was a Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet-diplomat and politician. Neruda wrote in a variety of styles, including surrealist poems, historical epics, overtly political manifestos, a prose autobiography, and passionate love poems such as the ones in his collection ""Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair"" (1924). He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Neruda occupied many diplomatic positions in various countries during his lifetime and served a term as a Senator for the Chilean Communist Party. Neruda is often considered the national poet of Chile."

The second verse of his famous poem "Un Canto para Bolivar", read by Neruda at the University of Mexico on July 24, 1941, for the 101st anniversary of the death of Simon Bolivar, and published in an edition of 500 copies (Imprenta Universitaria, 1941). Neruda noted this stanza in an autograph album in New York in 1943. "Tu pequeño cadáver de capitán valiente | ha extendido en lo inmenso su metálica forma, | de pronto salen dedos tuyos entre la nieve | y el australien pescador saca a la luz de pronto | tu sonrisa, tu voz palpitando en las redes".

- Two years earlier, Rubinstein penned four bars of the Polish national anthem "Himno Polaco" in the autograph album from which this sheet originates..
