Description
							Few poets have captured the global imagination like Pablo Neruda. In his native Chile, across Latin America, and in many other parts of the world, his name and legacy have become almost synonymous with liberation movements and with the language of erotic love. At the same time, his books transcend time and culture: Taylor Swift claimed inspiration from him for her smash album Red, and the Arab Spring movement featured graffiti of Neruda's line "You can crush the flowers, but you can't delay spring." 

Pablo Neruda: The Poet's Calling vividly depicts Neruda's monumental life, potent verse, and ardent belief in the "poet's obligation" to use poetry for social good. It braids together three major strands of Neruda's life-his world-revered poetry, his political engagement, and his tumultuous and controversial personal life-forming a single cohesive narrative of intimacy and breadth.
