Chilean politician Luis Corvalan writes in his essay “Pablo’s Examples” from El Siglo,

We all know that he has sung in praise of everything-love, birds, stones, southern rains, the rough Pacific Ocean, the Araucan pine, cactus, spoons, onions, salmon-bellied eels, everything he ever saw and touched with his poet’s eyes and feelings. And also human beings, our national heroes and our Araucanian forefathers, the miner, the railroader, the baker, workers of all kinds, the great epics of our time. He has written moving verses for his Party, poetry of love for his people, and poetry of fire against the enemy.
