Poem "un canto para Bolivar" by Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda and musical autograph by brilliant pianist Arthur Rubinstein.

A. Handwritten text by Pablo Neruda, the second stanza of his poem "A song for Bolivar". A 1/2 rectangular sheet. In Spanish. 19 cm x 12.5. New York, 1943. With some minor wear around the edges. Crisp writing and in very good condition. Single piece.

Your little corpse, brave captain,
it was that extended in the immense the metallic form,
soon your fingers will come out of the snow
and the southern fisherman takes light in a moment
your smile, your voice that throbs in networks.

Pablo Neruda (1904 - 1973) wrote "A song for Bolivar" to commemorate the anniversary of the death of the South American revolutionary Simon Bolivar. He read the poem at the University of Mexico during the 111th anniversary of Bolivar's passing. Politicized in war-torn Europe, Neruda discovered that America could become the focus of his poems. Our verse was written during Pablo Neruda's visit to New York, in 1943, when he participated in a meeting of the Pan-American organization "Voz de Las Americas".

B. On the back of the page is a musical autograph signed by Polish-American pianist Arthur Rubinstein from the Polish national anthem, Mazurek Dąbrowskiego.

Polish Anthem, Arthur Rubinstein, Santiago, 18.2.37

Arthur Rubinstein (1887 - 1982) criticized the UN in the year of its founding, in 1945, for not including a Polish delegation in its opening ceremony. He voiced his criticism by playing a thunderous version of the Mazurek Dąbrowskiego or "Poland Is Not Yet Lost", which has been Poland's national anthem since 1926.

This committed document, Neruda and Rubinstein together, was part of an autograph album held by a major New York collector.
