Pablo Neruda was born on June 12, 1904 and died on September 23, 1973. He was first called Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto, but later changed his name to Pablo Neruda. He was son of Jose del Carmen Reyes Morales and Rosa Neftalí Basoalto Opazo. His mother died of tuberculosis when he was only one month. His father got married again with Trinidad Candia Marverde when they moved to Temuco,Neruda called her mother. His father was opposed to Neruda's interest in writing and literature, but Neruda received encouragement from others. His first published work was an essay he wrote for the local daily newspaper at the age of thirteen, called La Mañana. The Spanish Civil War and the murder of García Lorca, whom Neruda knew, affected him strongly and made him join the Republican movement,first in Spain, and later in France, where he started working on his collection of poems España en el Corazón (1937). The same year he returned to his native country, to which he had been recalled, and his poetry during the following period was characterised by an orientation towards political and social matters. España en el Corazón had a great impact by virtue of its being printed in the middleof the front during the civil war. Neruda was a Chilean poet which was considered one of the greatest and most influential poets of the 20th century. He did love poems, historical epics, and overtly political manifestos, and his works were translated into many languages. He was also a politician and was senator of his republic and also a candidate for presidency. On 1971 he won the Nobel Prize forLiterature because of his political activism. Neruda was a radical poet who mixed meditations on political oppression with intensely personal lyrics about romantic love.
Pablo Neruda is renowned for his exploration of themes of love within his poetry, he was passionate about it. Pablo Neruda’s poetry is unique to all others. These are too deep and sensitive at the same time. The poems that aremost deeply were the "Love", "Always" and “Rain” has a very strong meaning. Love, is about a relationship, that he is disconcerted about it; he tries in many ways to find out why his relationship is getting to the end. Always, is about a man that all he cares is about being with her, with the love of his life. A rain is a story of a cries love that wasn’t good for both, is a love that comes backevery time, but always with the same conflicts, which fills all with tears.
Neruda writes love poem with a lot of thinking, he has a certain illusion about love. “Love” poem is very appealing for people who are in a relationship. “What is happening to us?” (Line 2), is an expression that he wants to know what is wrong with the woman that he loves. He is explaining that there is no love; hedoesn’t feel like he is receiving love. “I look at you and I find nothing” (line 10, 11),he is explaining a person with no emotions, but memories of them being in love. He can’t find anything in her eyes, in her, mouth, in her heart. “It makes a new knot for us to condemn us, to drain our blood and burn together” (line 8, 9), he uses symbolism in this quote, because he wants to explain that is the samestay like this, or go to hell.
In addition, he can’t handle anymore this situation, is being so difficult. He is heartbroken; he doesn’t have anything else to give to his lover. “How empty you went through the world like a wheat-colored jar” (line 16, 17), he is using simile to express that she is empty. He tries to let us know that she has no feeling anymore, that she doesn’t care about anythingin that world, and that he is dying from inside. The only thing that he knew, and he will ever know is that she finally end all the love that they used to care about without any explanation, any reason. All his life he will be asking himself, why? When was him when she stopped feeling love for him, and why did he couldn’t make that that love grew up again, like when they were happy that...
