Chile - Culture: Pablo Neruda
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Think about the place where you live. Is it a big city or a small town? Are there lots of people there? What about the school you attend? Do you have lots of friends there? Do you think you live in a nice country, with lots of opportunities to do what you want with your life? What are some problems with where you live?
 
2     Now think about how you would describe where you live to someone else. Think about your talents. Could you write a song that would describe your home? Could you paint a picture? Maybe you could photograph where you live. There are lots of ways to talk about your home, depending on your talents. Not so long ago, there was a talented writer in Chile named Pablo Neruda. He loved to write about his home.
 
3     Neruda was born on July 12, 1904. He was born with a different name, Neftali Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He was born in the town of Parral, Chile. He was born to average parents; his father was a railroad worker and his mother was a teacher. Soon after he was born, his mother died and he and his father moved to Temuco, where Neruda would grow up. It was in Temuco where Neruda would become a writer.
