The Lamp on Earth, is the opening poem of Pablo Neruda’s Canto General. Illustrated by Mexican artist Daniela Martín del Campo, it unveils the grandeur of the continent before it was named America, teeming with life and natural abundance. As nature’s balance is disrupted by exploitation, the need to rekindle our connection to the land becomes urgent. This illustrated poem calls for a return to the wonder of nature, offering hope for a renewed appreciation of the Earth’s beauty.
