Fully Empowered

Poetry by Pablo Neruda

Widely held as one of the most profoundly influential of Latin-American writers, Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda regarded this collection, Fully Empowered, as a particular favorite. These poems, which came out of a most fruitful period of his life, claim a place in any selection of Neruda’s greatest work. “The People” (El Pueblo), about the state of the workingman in Chile’s past and present, is the most celebrated of his later poems. Fully Empowered first appeared in Spanish in 1962 under the title of Plenos Poderes. It was translated into English by Alastair Reid at the specific request of the author and described by The New Republic as “a full book, rich in experience, alternately groping and sweeping, and a joy to read.”
