Pablo Neruda- poeta Chileno
Parral, Chile 1904-1973 Santiago, Chile. “I, a poet who writes in Spanish, learned more from Walt Whitman than from Cervantes” -Neruda, 1972. When I was in high school, I read a lot of Walt Whitman; I even quoted “Song of Myself” in the yearbook. I was fascinated with the way that he celebrated nature and the beauty of self in an epic literary style. After reading Neruda’s poetry this weekend, I am not surprised to learn that the Chilean poet was one of Whitman’s biggest fans (he kept a framed portrait of the American on his table). Neruda was 20 when he published Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, the book of poetry that would secure his literary fame. Freshly out of high school (where he had come to know Gabriel Mistral, a teacher who encouraged his writing), Neruda was an avid reader, and evidently deeply inspired by Whitman. Take a look at the following parts of four poems: From Neruda’s Ah Vastness of Pines Ah vastness of pines, murmur of waves breaking, slow play of lights, solitary bell… From Whitman’s Ah Poverties AH poverties, wincings, and sulky retreats! Ah you foes that in conflict have overcome me! From Neruda’s Body of a Woman: Body of a woman, white hills, white thighs, when you surrender, you stretch out like the world. My body, savage and pleasant, undermines you and makes a son leap in the bottom of the earth. Body of skin, of moss, of firm and thirsty milk! And the cups of your breasts! And your eyes full of absence! And the roses of your mound! And your voice slow and sad! From Whitman’s I Sing the Body Electric Hair, bosom, hips, bend of legs, negligent falling hands all diffused, mine too diffused, Ebb stung by the flow and flow stung by the ebb, love-flesh swelling and deliciously aching, Limitless limpid jets of love hot and enormous, quivering jelly of love, white-blow and delirious nice, Bridegroom night of love working surely and softly into the prostrate dawn, Undulating into the willing and yielding day, Lost in the cleave of the clasping and sweet-flesh'd day. They’re pretty similar, eh? Whitman is famous for his parenthetical insertions (like ah!), and it looks as though Neruda is mimicking him here. Another thing that links Neruda to Whitman is their enumerative styles (the cataloging of chaotic, random details). They both use the sensory and the natural to express their curiosity about the experience of life. Unlike Gabriela Mistral, Neruda’s work seems more improvised and impulsive. There are no Greek Goddesses found in his poetry, he instead describes earthy Chilean woman, the beauty of nature, and the glory in the ordinary. Walt would’ve been proud.

Nina Simone- Do I Move You
Nina Simone was an African American singer, song-writer, pianist, composer and civil rights activist whose long musical career still influences modern music today. Born Eunice Kathleen Waymon on February 21, 1933 in Tryon, North Carolina, Nina (also known as The High Priestess of Soul) started playing the piano at the age of four. She continued her musical education into adulthood, studying classical piano at Julliard School of Music. In 1958, she recorded her debut album, Little Girl Blue, which was the first in a long list of successful studio and live albums. It is this impressive repertoire that has caught the ears of many of today’s musical artist, such as Mos Def, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, and Lil’ Wayne. Many artists have sampled Nina’s music into their own work, introducing the musical genius of “The High Priestess of Soul” to a younger generation of listeners. Nina’s contribution to modern day Hip-Hop and Rhythm and Blues is evident today’s music. Many of today’s musical artists credit her for impacting their style and music. Talib Kweli was quoted in an interview as saying "Nina Simone was very inspirational as a person to me.” Kweli also remixed Nina’s 1966 song, Four Women. Another admirer of Nina’s music is Lil’ Wayne. The rapper sampled parts of Nina’s Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood in the introduction and chorus of his song DontGetIt which can be found on his successful 2008 album, Tha Carter III. Dr. Simone is also appreciated in today’s Rhythm and Blues genre. Mary J. Blige’s song, About You, featuring Will.I.Am, contains elements of Nina’s Feeling Good throughout the chorus. The singer is also slated to star as Nina in a film chronicling her life. The film is due to release in 2012. Nina’s music can also be found in various movie soundtracks, and television commercials. Her great impact on modern music is endless. Even though Nina Simone is no longer with us (sadly, she died of breast cancer in 2003), her music is still admired by those who came after her. If Nina were alive today, she would probably view the fact that other musicians are sampling and remixing her work as a form of admiration. She paved the way for many of today’s African American Rhythm and Blues artists. The sampling technique has provided these artists with the opportunity to bring forth the music of yesterday into today. Because of this, her influence in music is still strong. Younger listeners are able to appreciate the bluesy, yet intense nature of Nina Simone’s music. This can only mean one thing - her legacy will live on f o r e v e r. Nina Simone's Official Website

Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) tried to destroy the clues hidden in his early work. His attempt to purchase every surviving copy of the magazines that featured some of these efforts, in order to eradicate all evidence of their existence, is just the kind of obsessive pursuit he would celebrate in his own elliptical stories. http://postmodernmystery.com/ficciones.html
JORGE LUIS BORGES Argentine writer, one of the most prominent of the literature of the XX century
"Las dictaduras fomentan la opresión, las dictaduras fomentan el servilismo, las dictaduras fomentan la crueldad; más abominable es el hecho de que fomenten la idiotez. Botones que balbucean imperativos, efigies de caudillos, vivas y mueras prefijados, muros exornados de nombres, ceremonias unánimes, la mera disciplina usurpando el lugar de la lucidez… Combatir esas tristes monotonías es uno de los muchos deberes del escritor." — Jorge Luis Borges
Jorge Luis Borges, (24 August 1899 – 14 June 1986) was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator who was born in Buenos Aires. His work embraces the "character of unreality in all literature". His most famous books, Ficciones (1944) and The Aleph (El Aleph in Spanish) (1949), are compilations of short stories interconnected by common themes such as dreams, Borges' works have contributed to philosophical literature and also to both the fantasy and magical realism genres.

The Chocolate Lady's Book Reviews: John Irving's Masterpiece
Today’s post is brought to you by the letter L. Picking my favorite five books in 26 different genres isn’t easy. Some genres have TONS of great books, and other letters don’t really have obvious genres. So I’m cheating and doubling up. I know that C was for classic, and I already told you about my five favorite classics. But L is for Literature, so now I’m going to tell you about five more. Aren’t I crafty? What’s your favorite l gem? A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. I almost went with a different John Irving book, but couldn’t keep Owen Meany off my list. This was one of my absolute favorite books as a teenager. Owen is just such an unusual character. Also, John Irvings books are all good at forcing me to think. I don’t necessarily love them as much while I’m reading them, but I spend weeks thinking about them after I’ve turned the last page. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. I almost put Hamlet on this list, because it’s well Hamlet. But I think Midsummer is my favorite of Shakespeare’s plays, so I decided to list it instead. I love them all though. Shakespeare is remembered and revered for a reason, he wrote so many amazing plays and poems, it’s hard to believe he was only one guy. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Dickens is kind of like Shakespeare, a great master. I love A Tale of Two Cities partially because it’s a great book, and partially out of nostalgia. It was the first bedtime story my mom read to me in our new home after we moved when I was nine. Yes, I loved Dickens when I was nine, and yes, hearing his words made me feel at home in a new place. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. Before it was a great musical, it was a great book. It’s an interesting mystery that is definitely worth reading. Or I guess you could just visit Broadway and listen to the music of the night instead. Even though I love this book, it is kind of weird reading it—there aren’t any musical interludes, in Phantom. So bazaar. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Another timeless classic, kind of. That’s the thing about classics. People always claim that they’re timeless, and quote them and relate to them now. And really great books do transcend time, to an extent. But come on, today people don’t marry their first cousins, and four miles is never an impenetrable distance. It’s the history that comes with the story that I actually like best about most classics. Tune back in tomorrow for the letter M. Also don't forget to enter my 100 followers contest.

"La poesia è un atto di pace. La pace costituisce il poeta come la farina il pane". #PabloNeruda 12 luglio 1904 – 23 settembre 1973
'The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth & beauty.' Pablo Neruda.
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” ~ Pablo Neruda.
