Defectos Escogidos (English trans. Chosen Defects) is a rare, posthumous collection of Neruda’s poetry. Published in Argentina, this first edition volume demonstrates the influence Neruda's service in the Second World War had on his attitude towards the culture's idea of poetry as an elitist pass-time. The poems in this volume are printed plainly, in a large and legible font that democratizes the accessibility to language. Neruda's voice resonates with that poetic impulse for writing that's for and by the people, famously raising his voice to the chorus of a collective humanity. Text in Spanish.
