Pablo Neruda: Lesson Plans, Videos, Books, & More

If you follow Latinas for Latino Lit over on Facebook, then you probably already know that more than 20 unpublished poems by Pablo Neruda have been found. His publisher says the discovery amounts to 'a literary event of universal significance!' They were found among his papers in his native Chile.

The late Nobel laureate led such a colorful life and there are several children's books that have been published describing it. You might remember this little review I did of Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People by Monica Brown.

At any rate, I thought now would be a great time to publish another compilation of lesson plans, activities, videos, books, and more of this remarkable poet. I was surprised at how few I could actually find. (Someone needs to remedy this, no?) So below, is a list of some of the great resources I was able to find online. I'll be updating it as I come across new materials.

Lesson Plans


Sadly, there aren't very many printables currently available on the Nobel laureate. But you can explore some of his work or style of poetry below:

  • Here's a lovely little video of Julie Paschkis, illustrator of "Pablo Neruda, Poet of the People."
