Pablo Neruda was the pen name of the Chilean poet, diplomat and politician Ricardo Reyes Basoalto (1904-73). Writing in a variety of modes including love poems and other lyrics, historical epics, political manifestos and a prose autobiography, Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971. He was justly called “the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language” by his fellow Nobel Prize winner the Colombian novelist Gabriel García Marquez.
