Zhang Shuying (Professor, Department of Foreign Languages, Qing University) On the 50th anniversary of his death, the new Chinese translation of "Memoirs of Neruda" is launched This year, a very rare Spanish-language literary event, the traditional and simplified versions of the "Memoirs of Neruda" (Confieso que he vivido) were published on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. The mainland version came out in Taiwan half a year ago.

This shows that Neruda's reputation is amazing and loud for readers at first sight. shutterstock_1367314718 Photo Credit: Shutterstock / Dazhi Images One of Neruda's Miyakes: La Sebastiana Neruda broke the language barrier and became a literary legend Indeed, Neruda is the most familiar Spanish-language poet in the Chinese-speaking world, and he is als
