Chilean poet, diplomat, and Marxist, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Adopted the name Pablo Neruda legally in 1946 after using it over 20 years as a writer. Neruda is the most widely read of the Spanish American poets. From the 1940 his works reflected the political struggle of the left and socio-historical developments in South America, but he also wrote love poems. Neruda's Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair (1924) have sold over a million copies since it first appeared.

Pablo Neruda owned a house in the hills of Valparaíso. The house, with a wonderful view of the city an the harbour of Valparaiso, is full of colours and amazing funny objects which belonged to the poet.

He named the house as "La Sebastiana", which is now owned by the Neruda Foundation, who opened the house in 1992.

Latin American poets like Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral and Mexican poet Octavio Paz have been inspired by Indian Noble Laureate Rabindranath Tagore's poetry. I was surprised and happy to read about the popularity of Tagore's poetry in Chile and its influence on Latin American poets. It was a great feeling..................
