Pablo Neruda left us his vision of the world disseminated throughout his writings, from which his obsessions and concerns can be extracted in the form of recurring themes that we briefly expose in this article:
El love It was undoubtedly the axis and motor of his literary production and this is not limited only to the man-woman relationship but is appreciated in other types of relationships such as the love of existence itself, the love of friends or the love of others. classmates. Love is usually something positive in Neruda that, however, can lead to frustrations and pain, since the desired degree of correspondence is not always achieved.
El existential pain is another of the constants in his poetry, in which human beings are shown as creatures immersed in a universe in which suffering is in any corner ready to plunge one into the worst of states and make you see and feel the loneliness he suffers.
Finally, the tiempo or rather its passage, it is another of the obsessions of a Neruda who sees destruction and death in the flow of the hands of the clock from which he can only escape through love ... which paradoxically also disappears with time, so temporal flow traps men in a spiral of becoming from which it is not possible to get out.
