Author Biography

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was born and died in Chile, but as a member of the diplomatic corps and later as a sort of roving cultural ambassador, he lived in and visited many parts of the world. His first book of poetry was published before he was twenty and Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, published the following year, made him famous throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Besides the Canto and the Elemental Odes series, the major works of his vast poetic production include Residence on Earth and Estravagario Margaret Sayers Peden is Professor Emerita of Spanish at the University of Missouri, Columbia
