December's selection: Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair by Pablo Neruda
Discussion led by Ann Huang
Pablo Neruda’s Los veinte poemas de amor y una cancion desesperada / Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair (Spanish and English edition) epitomized the wit of a generation of hot-blood poets, writers and artists in rediscovering human condition in the defining and turning point of the past century. They taught us to face our shared earthly space (mother land and nature) in our own skin, of having lost our mothers, and to reminisce what time has left us. Love is meant to be lived twice.
