This book, which reads like a great novel, investigates the most interesting aspects of Neruda’s early life, from his birth in 1904 to 1935: his poetic vocation, his strong sense of freedom, his numerous licentious love affairs, the beginnings of his political thought, his first political posts, and the friendships he always cultivated with artists and thinkers, which were the core of his existence.
