By Pablo Neruda
Neruda narra, con los angeles inigualable potencia verbal que caracteriza a sus mejores escritos, no sólo los principales episodios de su vida, sino las circunstancias que rodearon l. a. creación de sus poemas más famosos. Magistralmente, el autor expone tanto su concepción del arte y de l. a. poesía cuanto los motivos que le llevaron a defender hasta el ultimate de su vida sus conocidas posiciones políticas. De forma no menos brillante, rememora l. a. figura de algunos amigos: García Lorca, Alberti, Miguel Hernández, Eluard, Aragon y su relación con personajes destacados de l. a. política contemporánea. A este respecto, resulta particularmente emotiva l. a. evocación que cierra este libro de su amigo el presidente Allende escrita a los tres días de su trágica muerte. «El poeta -escribió Neruda- debe ser parcialmente, el cronista de su época.» A lo largo de estas Memorias, Pablo Neruda se mostró como un auténtico cronista y testigo de nuestro tiempo. El presente libro manifiesta una vez más que un poeta es una «conciencia puesta en pie hasta el fin», y los angeles tensión estilística de los angeles prosa de Neruda es equivalente a l. a. tensión expresiva y a los angeles perentoria vigencia y exigencia ethical que caracteriza su obra poética.

This speaker also experiences life without content; it is a dangerous moment; if survived it will bring expanse, if not - 'but that is Death, whose if is everlasting' (PF 49).

Unknowing' has begun. In this fall from meaning the speaker experiences the awe of being unable to signify, unable to find words to fit experience. In such moments the burden of language is lifted and there is an influx of power: 'All things swept sole away/ This - is immensity - ' (1512). Much of the poetry precipitates just such a fall from meaning and restores the sense of the abyss that language has domesticated. Dickinson's poems constantly remind us of the fragility of our worded world. Daily life rests upon the articulation of a significant and coherent world, but Dickinson reminds us that this articulation is but a plank over the abyss I stepped from Plank to Plank A slow and cautious way The Stars about my Head I felt About my Feet the Sea.
