"Among his many masterworks, Neruda wrote poems about the mysterious
power of poetry itself, a power embraced by Chilean culture. This
evening focuses on the evolution of Neruda as a political poet, his
struggle and exile at the hands of his own government, his death in
the wake of the military coup, and his redemption after democracy
returned to Chile."
Martin Espada is the author of several collections of poetry
including Alabanza: New and Selected Poems 1982-2002. He is a
professor in the Department of English at the University of
Massachusetts-Amherst, where he teaches creative writing, Latino
poetry, and the work of Pablo Neruda.
