    One thought on “The Book of Questions”

    1. Pablo Neruda only finished The Book of Questions months before his death in September 1973.With it s composition, he comes full circle as both a human being and writer The poet existed in waters that no one else could swim in, flowing in all directions, from the sun kissed surface that flirted with the waves, to the dark hearted Abyss that lies below This collection follows the same common source of all his work, re visiting that deep well of perpetuity, the imagination of regeneration and visio [...]

    2. This book asks heart wrenching questions in every prose I loved it wholeheartedly Absolutely brilliant questioning poetry which hit you hard,hit you hard in the core of your heart, blown your mind in the end made you think Hold on,Hold on,This book is a gem so how can I let it go without adding my favorite lines here,Is it true our desires must be watered with dew Do tears not yet spilled wait in small lakes Or are they invisible rivers that run toward sadness Is it true that sadness is thick an [...]

    3. You don t want to answer me.But the questions do not die Neruda, 1924 The Book of Questions is a collection of 316 questions that compose the 74 poems 316 questions which no rational answers exists, says the introductory part of my copy No rational answers may exist for these questions, but the rational mind will strive beyond conventions to grasp its meanings If you will ruminate on this 74 poems, one will find that some answers do exist, albeit spiritual and mercurial answers validated by allu [...]

    4. 3.5 316 74 70 71 What forced labordoes Hitler do in hell Does he paint walls or cadavers Does he sniff the fumes of the dead Do they feed him the ashes of so many burnt children Or, since his death, have they given him blood to drink from a funnel Or do they hammer into his mouth the pulled gold teeth Or do they lay him down to sleep on his barbed wire Or are they tattooing his skin for the lamps in hell Or do black mastiffs of flame bite him without mercy Or must he travel without rest, n [...]

    5. Por que se queda en los ramajeshast que las hojas se caen Y donde se quedan colgadossus pantalones amarillos Verdad que parece esperarel otono que pase algo Tal vez el temblor de una hojeo el transito del universo Hay un iman bajo la tierra,iman hermano del otono Cuando se dicta bajo tierrale designacion de la rosa Why does it linger at the branchesuntil the leaves fall And where are its yellow trousersleft hanging Is it true that autumn seems to waitfor something to happen Perhaps the trembling [...]

    6. In France, where does spring get so many leaves Why do trees conceal the splendor of their roots Where is the child I was, still inside me or gone Does he know that I never loved him and that he never loved me Why did we spend so much time growing up only to separate Why did we both not die when my childhood died And why does my skeleton pursue me if my soul has fallen away Is there anything in the world sadder than a train standing in the rain Does a word sometimes slither like a serpent In whi [...]

    7. 316 questions posed by the great poet just months before his death I found than 70 of them worth copying into my journal, and I m not particularly compulsive about things like that Reading them, you will probably find yourself transported to an especially thoughtful and unusual frame of mind.Here are some personal favorites spaced widely to try to preserve some measure of the original pacing Is it true that in an anthill, dreams are duty Am I allowed to ask my book whether it s true I wrote it [...]

    8. Simply hilarious The great Chilean poet wrote a book of nothing but strange, bizarre questions, like Tell me, is the rose nakedor is that her only dress Why do trees concealthe splendor of their roots Who hears the regretsof the thieving automobile Is there anything in the world sadder than a train standing in the rain Many of them would make for great prompts for writing exercises.
