The Key

Pablo Neruda was born in the frontier lands of southern Chile in 1904. At an early age, he began a life of charged political and poetic activity. In 1971, Neruda, often referred to as “the poet of enslaved humanity”, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Neruda died in Santiago, Chile, in 1973. “The Key” is from The House in the Sano (Milkweed, 1990). ["Contributor Note" from original publication, 1998.]
