Publo Neruda - People's Poet

Pablo Neruda, Chile's greatest poet, communist, and a man of great learning, died two years after receiving Nobel Prize for literature. It had been alleged that he was poisoned by the fascist regime of Pinochet Govt. His death anniversary is on 23 September. I do not see any activity in Dhaka to commemorate the works of this great poet. As part of our Poetry-week, I am hereby submitting a few links and a few pictures from my book collection. Poetry Foundation runs a wonderful page on Neruda - take a look.
