Pablo Neruda (1904-1973) was probably the greatest and certainly the most prolific of twentieth-century Latin American poets. He brought out his first collection at the age of seventeen and quickly developed an assured and distinctive poetic voice.
This poetic play draws on work from throughout his writing life, from the famous early collection Twenty Love Songs and a Song of Despair (1924) to the key works of his maturity, Residence on Earth (1935), Elemental Odes (1954) and the autobiographical Memorial de Isla Negra (1964).
Few writers of any age have described the pleasures and torments of erotic love with such unsentimental directness and sensual precision.
Metamorphosis Theatre Inc brings you the most celebrated and admired love poetry on stage penned in the last hundred years intermingling with Music, and Movement.
