PABLO NERUDA,THE POET AND HIS LOVE POEM, ‘YOUR HANDS’ !

PABLO NERUDA,The Chilean Poet and Diplomat,Is Unanimously Hailed As One Of The Greatest Poets Of Latin America In The 20th-Century.
Neruda took to poetry very early in life as he used to compose poetry while at school and was very much fortunate to be in touch of a lady school-principal who herself was to be awarded the Nobel-Prize For Literature,GABRIELA MISTRAL .She used to encourage the teenager Neruda to compose poems,despite the ruing fact that his father was almost against poetry writing.NERUDA WOULD COMPOSE POETRY UNDER A PSEUDONYM .In fact,the very name, PABLO NERUDA,is the pseudonym/pen-name of the poet who was born as Rafateli .

Neruda Got Wider Recognition When He Got His Collection Of Poems Published When He Was Just 20yrs. Old.The Title Of That Collection was, ‘TWENTY LOVE POEMS AND A SONG OF DESPAIR’.

Neruda Happened To Be A Rather Versatile Poet Who Was Both,A Romantic And A Realist Poet.
His Romantic Life Has Provided A Good Deal Of Fodder For His Poetry And He Is Unanimously Regarded As One Of The Greatest Poets Of Love In Modern World Literature!
His Employment Of Unique Imagery And Treatment Of Common Thematic Aspects Of Love,Is Simply Superb!

‘YOUR HANDS’ IS ONE SUCH LOVE-POEM OF NERUDA.
The Poet Through The Hands Of The Beloved,Recreates The Time Of Togetherness When The Lover And His Beloved Were Busy In Love-Making!

The Frenzied Motion And The Smoothness Involved Therein Make That Flight More Consumating and Memorable.The Lover Exactly Recalls The End Point Of The Flight Of Her Hands And That Is His Chest Where Both Of Her Hands Becalm As Two Wings Of A Bird Get Rest !
