Pablo Neruda

The magnetic bookmark with the photo of Pablo Neruda from Chile. Thanks to Daniela for adding this bookmark to my collection :)

Pablo Neruda (1904 – 1973) was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet and politician Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He chose his pen name after Czech poet Jan Neruda.
Neruda wrote erotically charged love poems, surrealist poems, historical epics, and overtly political manifestos. In 1971 Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez once called him "the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language." Neruda always wrote in green ink as it was the color of "esperanza" (hope).
