“Slowly dies who does not travel, who does not read, who does not listen to music, who does not find grace in himself.”
Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto (Parral, July 12, 1904 – Santiago de Chile, September 23, 1973), was a Chilean poet, diplomat and politician, considered one of the most important figures of Latin American literature of the twentieth century. He chose the pseudonym of Pablo Neruda, in honor of the Czech writer and poet Jan Neruda. Defined as “the greatest poet of the twentieth century, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1971. He also held prominent diplomatic and political positions for his country, such as that of Senator, his candidacy for President of Chile in 1970. He died in a hospital in Santiago in 1973. Neruda’s poetics ranges from realism to surrealism, but his deepest inspiration is never overshadowed, he expresses a romantic and dramatic concept of life, a lover of small things and of his land and in revolt with conventions. The theme of love for life is accompanied by an investigation into death and existence, in search of absolute freedom. The main topic of his poem remains love: towards existence, towards the beloved woman, towards his country, humanity, nature, plants, food and animals, all that arouses a feeling of connection and happiness in man. “They will be able to cut all the flowers , but they won’t stop never spring “. “They will be able to cut all the flowers, but they will never stop spring” is a phrase, a concept, an ideal. If we all paused for a minute to reflect on how such a simple sentence contains an exaggerated intellectual strength, we would understand that we are the certainty with our potential. We are spring and as it will not cease to be for lack of flowers, we will not cease to be faced with the obstacles of life.
The connection with the outside that Neruda expresses in his writings is found within us. It is the strength to decide, to choose and to achieve the set goals.
What Neruda’s writing transmits is an emotional involvement, an acute feeling of peace and a particular elegance of language. Relaxing with a good read can sometimes change and help develop an entire process. Sometimes getting lost in someone else’s works and experiences (writers, …) we could discover new horizons and broaden our views. Discover new energy to be used in professional and daily life.
