This paper focuses on the theme of identity in Neruda’s poetry. It aims at asserting the resistant (mestizaje) identity that Pablo Neruda advocates in his poetry. It illustrates poetic instances where the poet identifies himself with a plurality of identities. In other words, such identity is hybrid in such a way that it resists the pure, politically-constructed identity that is imposed by power. It is a kind of extraordinary identity that transcends the normal, submissive one. Furthermore, the poet renounces the interpellation strategy towards the subject’s identity used by power to achieve homogeneity and constructedness. Finally, this work locates Pablo Neruda in terms of resistance literature.
