An important collection that includes some of the Nobel Prize winner's own favorite poems.qThe SeaqqA single entity, but no blood.qqA single caress, death or a rose.qqThe sea comes in and puts our lives togetherqqand attacks alone and spreads itself and singqqsin nights and days and men and living creatures.qqIts essence-fire and cold; movement, movement.qPablo Neruda himself regarded qFully Empoweredq -- which first appeared in Spanish in 1962 under the title Plenos Poderes -- as a particular favorite, in part because it came out of a most fruitful period in his life.
