From the cover: “In his poetry, Pablo Neruda periodically shed his poetic skin to assume new forms. More than one critic has alluded to this "protean ability to be always in the vanguard of change”. The prose pieces in this posthumous collection reflect that versatility, that enormous hunger for new modes of expression, new adventures, new challenges. Spanning a lifetime, these passions and impressions range from early prose poems anticipating Neruda’s first collection of poetry to the speech he delivered, two years before his death, on the occasion of his acceptance of the Nobel Prize.
