So sorry,  I was talking about Pablo and his writing skills taking him into a spiral of depression, not you.  Your commentary was better than his poem, to me!  Cheers

Re: Anib/GM

Ha, ha ... no GM, I don't use my writing skills to spiral into depression on general, but sometimes I do for the fun of it and sometimes for others to feel what the poet felt. And that's my two cents. Cheers, and thanks.

Good grief,  poor Pablo seems to be overly indulging in an obsession with this absent woman,  who no longer feels the same about him?  She definitely put her hooks deep into him.  He would have better spent his time pulling out the hooks, and writing about something more uplifting.  Don't waste great writing skills on spiralling oneself into depression.  But that is just my 2 cents.....

How kind of you to help the student. That's okay about Neruda. No big deal. :)

Re: Re: Re: Aba Brother

Yes, you did mention that you're a fan of Neruda. How could I miss it? You said read, you hadn't studied, oh I see. Thanks so much for your high praise of my interpretation. I actually did it as part of a project for my student.

Re: Re: Aba Brother

Aba dear, I didn't say that I hadn't read Neruda; I said I hadn't studied him. LOL. I have read him, and am a fan, so to speak. But that's okay, the point is the message of the poet, and it is clear, as was your excellent post, which brings this most eloquent poet to us. Many thanks, l'il bro!

Re: Annicita

Sometims haunting and depressing things too are required, I think.

Re: Aba Brother

Despite your not having read Neruda you have read him perfectly right. But whether this one was true or not, it doesn't matter. The message comes out so crystal clear. Thanks sis

Re:

In India CCT, it is becoming common like the west not live  with one partner, but still it is prevalent 80% to have one spouse. Actually itis rare that one thinks of changing partners.

Rightly so.

I read some of his works in my Spanish literature classes. I felt his work was haunting and depressing.

Ahh, a beautiful, beautiful poem you've chosen. I am a fan of Neruda. Your analysis is so learned that it's a joy to read. I read it as the last stanza to possibly be the words of a man who loves a lady so much even when she no longer feels the same, that he is so desperate for any response from her that even a tiny smile is enough to fill him with utter joy! But then, I have not studied Neruda and upon a deeper read, the silence is the true point anyway. And you are correct, sometimes the silence carries all the words we cannot say. Beautiful!

Well of course one would not wish ones love to be dead, but ironically one might not share the same wish for her known or unknown lover. Really it is all a matter of the first connection, one meets someone falls in love and reveres for a while the object of ones desire. One thinks no other can be so desirable and this can be so painful. So love really exists in ones mind as long as one finds it suitable. Perhaps we are duplicated more than we believe, but I think it is fairly obvious that one could fall in love with many different suitable partners, although it is nice if one can stay through thick and thin, although it is not always possible..
