Thanks to the film Il Postino, the picture many of us have of Neruda’s life is that he was on Capri in 1952 with his Mathilde, to whom his love poetry is as open-hearted as it is confessional to the reader, while his political nerve is internationally inspiring. Neruda won the Nobel prize in 1971.
“We left buzzing with delight and enormously stimulated to read more of Neruda’s work. Please do come back with the other six Olympians!”
(Jane Hole, at Neruda Night in Taunton)
“Inspiring and brilliant. An enthralling evening”
(Anna Powell, at the West Bay Neruda Night)
“Outstanding.” (John Taylor, at the West Bay Neruda Night)
“Graham Fawcett is very good indeed. He has a marvellous knack of opening up a poet’s life and instantly taking you on a colourful voyage through their life and work. Very illuminating”.
(James Crowden, at West Bay’s Neruda Night)
“You took a unique approach, sent me in directions I hadn’t expected and left me wanting to discover more for myself”.
(Christine Murphy, after the Lewes Neruda Night)
