    Pablo Neruda was one of the first people to use surrealism extensively in his poetry. It added a sense of supernatural phenomena, as reality was overflowing over the top to this new world which he could manipulate. Burial in the East, and Carnal Apple are among my favourites, and each portray a realistic event in a surreal fashion.

    Pablo Neruda is among, if not the Seminal Latin American writer. I would strongly encourage people who wish to read Neruda to buy a bilingual copy of his book, Spanish is truly a beautiful language.

    We have a poet here in Bangladesh named Kazi Nazrul Islam like Pablo Neruda. Neruda is great, undoubtedly. But Nazrul is greater. I will request all to read the poems of Nazrul. He is the national poet of Bangladesh. All great poets are the wealth of the world.

Best Poem of Pablo Neruda

If You Forget Me

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,...

Read the full of If You Forget Me

In My Sky At Twilight

In my sky at twilight you are like a cloud
and your form and colour are the way I love them.
You are mine, mine, woman with sweet lips
and in your life my infinite dreams live.

The lamp of my soul dyes your feet,
the sour wine is sweeter on your lips,
oh reaper of my evening song,
how solitary dreams believe you to be mine!
