Posted by Ozymandias on Thursday, July 24, 2014 (07:21:09)

A pioneering literary tour de force, Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971 and was known as 'the people's poet' in his day. Highly admired by his fellow countrymen, he came to be regarded as a speaker of formidable influence in Chilean society.Link!
