Fully Empowered by Pablo Neruda
Book DescriptionAn important collection that includes some of the Nobel Prize winner's own favorite poems."The Sea""A single entity, but no blood.""A single caress, death or a rose.""The sea comes in and puts our lives together""and attacks alone and spreads itself and sing""sin nights and days and men and living creatures.""Its essence-fire and cold; movement, movement."Pablo Neruda himself regarded "Fully Empowered" -- which first appeared in Spanish in 1962 under the title Plenos Poderes -- as a particular favorite, in part because it came out of a most fruitful period in his life. These thirty-six poems vary from short, intense lyrics to characteristic Neruda odes to magnificent meditations on the office of poet, including poems that would undoubtedly claim a place in any selection of Neruda's greatest work. "The People" ("El Pueblo"), about the state of the working man in Chile's past and present, and the most celebrated of Neruda's later poems, completes this reflective, graceful collection.
