      I have been mesmerized with the persona of Pablo Neruda since I saw the film version of Postman, The/ Il Postino back in high school. In that depiction, Neruda is an exiled poet living in Italy during the rise of Mussolini while there befriends his mail carrier in a charming story. Later, having read many novels and memoirs by Isabel Allende, I have been privileged to learn of her Chilean perspective of Neruda as the nation's poet laureate, especially during Pinochet's 1973 coup d'état. Yet, un [...]

      When I got tired of copying love poems from the Chinese and Japanese into urgent, wretched note cards to lovers who were unattainable (and I'm a genius at finding unattainable characters to pine after) that's when I turned to Pablo Neruda. He's even better than Asian poets at crafting throbbing, passionate, wounded phrases of affection:I love you as the plant that never bloomsbut carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;thanks to your love a certain solid fragrencerisen from the earth, live [...]

      I really sometimes wonder if I love right, love correctly, or if I love at all and am not just miming what I think, what I want, I feel. For me I love all at once, I fall very fast, but rarely. I will go long loveless periods through life, happy and unthinking of what passions I am missing, unenvious of people paired in love, like a bright new boat at sea not thinking at all of the harbor. And suddenly in a lightning flash (un coup de foudre), I am whipped up into a maelstrom of passion and angu [...]

      It was one of those days. The kids flooded the bathroom, the cat vomited on my carpet, a toothbrush got lodged down the drain. One of those days. It was not a day to start a Sarah Vowell book about the beginnings of Hawaii… No, not today. Today, I grabbed the bottle of Sangria and sat down with this. Again, I have to thank for introducing me to Bells (shout out to Bells! Woot! Woot!) who introduced me to Pablo. Imagine living my whole life and not knowing Pablo!! The horror!There is a reason [...]

      I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,in secret, between the shadows and soul.I love you as the plant that never bloomsbut carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.I love without knowing how, or when, or from where.I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;So I love you be [...]

      #2010-16#Sepotong hari di bukit ilalangPagi,Rintik gerimis udara dingin, inginkan satu pelukan hangat kekasih. Terbangun dengan satu ciuman di kening, sementara di luar hujan. Kuambil gaun musim panasku dan berjalan ke pintu, memandang hujan rintik halus yang indah, dan berkata kepadanya,Aku mencintaimu tanpa tahu bagaimana, atau kapan, atau dari mana.Aku mencintaimu dengan lugas, tanpa banyak soal atau rasa bangga;begitulah aku mencintaimu sebab aku tak tahu jalan lain.

      and to me she quoted him"no one else, love, will sleep in my dreams. you will go,we will go together, over the waters of time one else will travel through the shadows with me,only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon."thus, i knew for sure.

      Super simply put, Neruda is word sex. I am not a love poems lover, but these sonnets are so nakedly a lover's poems that in this case I'm head over heels. In seriousness, these are brilliant in translation but I especially adored the original Spanish as it really was the work at its most lyrically organic awesomeness. (And my Spanish is wobbly at best).And organic is really the only word I'd use to describe theseNeruda himself, probably self-depricatingly (but un-self-consciously razor-accurate [...]

      «Amo il pezzo di terra che tu sei,perché delle praterie planetariealtra stella non ho.»Non si può fare a meno di tremare di fronte a una visione dell'amore come quella di Neruda: totalizzante. Nei suoi versi, il sentimento (quanto riduttiva mi sembra adesso questa parola!) amoroso diventa soverchiante, inebriante, conquistatore, è panico perché diventa tutto: terra, cielo, mare, «colomba e geografia». E il lettore amante non può far altro che chiudere gli occhi e inchinarsi.

      Is the rose naked,Or is that her only dress?You won't believe how beautiful the images these two short lines conjure in my head, intricate rose blooms, luscious, red petals spinning in the dark, red folds of silk, dragging on the floor to the dark chambers of a secret lover.There are lone cemeteries,tombs full of soundless bones,the heart threading a tunnel,a dark, dark tunnel:like a wreck we die to the very core,as if drowning at the heartor collapsing inside from skin to soulNow that is just s [...]

      I'm willing to admit that it's possible that other people in the world have been as in love with someone as Pablo Neruda was, but no one has ever expressed it so beautifully or ardently. With the eloquence and passion of a hundred poets, Neruda crafts lines that honor love so well that most people don't even know that love could BE so consuming or so light, so natural or so still. What Pablo Neruda does for love poetry- and for all poetry, for that matter- is a gift to the world. Muchas gracias, [...]

      youtube/watch?v=qzuKghPoezija ne pripada onome ko je pišeVeć onomeKo za njom potrebu ima.(Il postino, 1994)Volim Troizijevog Poštara. Volim Noareovog Pabla Nerudu. Volim Bakalovljevu muziku.Volim i Nerudine pesme, ispisane užarenim ugljem.A najviše volim nedeljom da ih pročitam nekome koga volim (jer ljubav je, po meni, jedna – celovita, kao što je čovek jedan - celovit, pa ih čitam mami, sestri, drugarici) pa da gledam kako srca oko mene rastu kao testo za krofne.

    18. Natalie on said:

      Probably my most favorite poet of contemporary times. Neruda uses language and nature to bring out the truthfulness of beauty, desire, love, and lust. The honesty and comparisons of love to simple and pure things in nature makes me wish I knew spanish and could read his writings in his native language.He also divides his sonnets into the catagories of morning, afternoon, and night, with each infiltrating new or different dimensions of love. Not always happy or unrealalistic, Neruda is honest in [...]

      I am not an avid reader of poetry nor will ever claim to fully understand the genre. But these two following sonnets: XVII & LXXXI by Neruda took a hold of my heart, my soul, touch me so deeply and intensely. They make me long for the day that I am in a relationship that will encompass & possess both the true essence and magnitude of unconditional love that is written in each one of these sonnets. I fully know that one day it will happen and when it does, it will take hold of me, my CORE [...]

Se vi trasportano nel loro universo (nelle loropraterie planetarie ), allora questa raccolta vi piacerà.mpedia/wiki/Il_bacio_(Hayez)it.mpedia/wiki/Viandante_sul Neruda descrive l'amore come qualcosa di impetuoso che ti avvolge e ti sommerge.

      You're probably expecting me to say somethingholarly. I can only say:1) This is probably one of the best books of poetry ever2) It should be treated with caution. Do not read under the following circumstances:A. out loudB. in the original languageC. in the presence of anyone of the opposite sexD. while under the influenceE. all of the above3) Don't ask me how I came to the above conclusions.

Sabes como é: se olho a lua de cristal, o ramo vermelho do lento outono à minha janela, se toco junto do lume a impalpável cinza ou o enrugado corpo da lenha, tudo me leva para ti, como se tudo o que existe, aromas, luz, metais, fosse pequenos barcos que navegam até às tuas ilhas que me esperam. Mas agora, se pouco a pouco me deixas de amar deixarei de te amar pouco a pouco. Se de súbito me esqueceres não me procures, porque já te terei esquec [...]

      Matilde, where are you? Down there I noticed, under my necktie and just above the heart, a certain pang of grief between the ribs, you were gone that quickly. I needed the light of your energy, I looked around, devouring hope. I watched the void without you that is like a house, nothing left but tragic windows. Out of sheer taciturnity the ceiling listens to the fall of the ancient leafless rain, to feathers, to whatever the night imprisoned: so I wait for you like a lonely house till you will s [...]
