Speech of Tribute:Pablo Neruda
Today, I would like to talk about a person who chases dreams, a person who has moved and inspired people all over the world for his writings, a person who lived for his beliefs and struggled with tradition. That person is Neftalí Ricardo Reyes Basoalto famously known as Pablo Neruda, the most widely read of the Spanish American poets. Born in a poor family on the small town of Parall in Chile, Pablo Neruda started writing poetry at the young age of ten. His family did not approve of his literary ambitions so he has to adapt the name Pablo Neruda. On 1921, he studied French language at the Instituto Pedagógico in Santiago. On 1924 he gained international fame with Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, which sold over a million copies in its first release but he was perhaps most known for his poem in the movie, Patch Adams, Sonnet 17. The sonnet, which
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
…Rest with your dream in my dream.
led me to the discovery of this eminent and profound man.
