Program Description


We invite you to join us at the Montecito Library, for an afternoon’s exploration of the vibrant, tender, and impassioned life and poetic work of Pablo Neruda.

Pablo Neruda was born in Parral, Chile in 1904. He began writing early in his childhood and would grow to become one of the world’s most widely translated and honored poets. He was a poet, a diplomat and a politician, and his poetry is vivacious, sensuous, and often politically charged. Neruda was a recipient of the World Peace Prize with Pablo Picasso and Paul Robeson in 1950 and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1971. He passed away in 1973, at home in Isla Negra.

Please bring a favorite poem by the featured poet to discuss. All are welcome.
