Feature: A Different Take On The World
Where we highlight a different way of thinking in order to better understand our experience of the world...
This week we visit Parral, Chile with a poem by Pablo Neruda called Poema 20. Born July 1904, Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet-diplomat and politician Ricardo Eliecer Neftali Reyes Bosoalto. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. Translated as Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Dispair , the poem expresses the pain of losing a lover. The bittersweet sentiment recalls their passionate relationship and recognises that "love is so short, forgetting is so long."
