Overview

Extravagaria marks an important stage in Neruda's progress as a poet. The book was written just after he had returned to Chile after many wanderings and moved to his beloved Isla Negra on the Pacific coast.

In this book, Neruda developed a lyric poetry decidedly more personal than his earlier work.
