Poetry of Pablo Neruda: The astoundingly beautiful verse of Pablo Neruda, introduced to many people through Miramax's hugely successful romantic drama Il Postino, is enough to make an English speaker want to learn the Spanish language--as incandescent as Neruda's stuff is in superior translations, its impact in the original language has got to be phenomenal. Southern Methodist University professor Rosa Jara-Simmons and local actors Dolores Godinez and Constance Gold will read Neruda's words in both languages and discuss the particularities of his singular vision. The event happens at 7 p.m. at Borders Books & Music, 10720 Preston Rd. It's free. Call (214) 363-1977.
