Jardín de invierno

Jardín de invierno / Winter Garden

Poetry , 1974


As the title suggests, Neruda returns to nature as a source of regeneration and embraces solitude as a positive force. Between this solitude and Neruda's public voice (he reluctantly became Chile's ambassador to France in 1971), between political realities and personal experience, Neruda addresses his own sense of responsibility in a remarkably unified and lyrical suite of poems.
