Notes

A scarce example of a signed carbon copy typescript poem by Pablo Neruda, with three small corrections in his hand. The 18-verse poem "Argentina, escucha lo que mi patria te dice" ("Argentina, hear what my country says to you") was written by the Chilean poet and diplomat on 4 June 1944 in response to the coup d'état of 1943 in Argentina. It was first published in El Siglo on 11 June 1944, but not collected until the Nerudiana dispersa volume of his complete works came out in 2001. It derives from the collection of Argentine editor and translator Félix della Paolera, and first emerged at Christies London in 2003, selling for 1,533.
