[Book Quote Tuesday] What is Valentine Month without Neruda?

"100 Love Sonnets" by Pablo Neruda.

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

And because it is February, the month of love, we will be sharing love quotes every Tuesday.

There is something in the way that Pablo Neruda wrote his poetry: so feelingly, so stark, and so vulnerable – daring one to accuse him of being too accessible for a poet – that it positively disarms and emboldens. His 100 Love Sonnets (Amazon | Book Depository) is definitely a must read.

Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
