Pablo Neruda
Date and Time:

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.
