An old vertical fold, a few soft corner creases, a few nicks and closed edgetears in the front wrapper, acidic paper somewhat brittle from age, but a good copy of this fragile 7-page leaflet. Not in Becco First edition of this poem written by Neruda to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the (temporary) turning back of the Nationalist army at the gates of Madrid and the twenty-fourth anniversary of the Soviet Union. Presentation copy, bearing Neruda's 3-line inscription, signed by him, on the front wrapper: Diómedes, Aqui es el substituto / con abrazo de Pablo Neruda." Written at the same time as Neruda's "Un nuevo canto de amor a Stalingrado [A Love Song to Stalingrad]", the present "Oda" celebrates the courage of the Russian people in their battle against Nazi Germany, a point that is amplified by the legend on the back wrapper: "Ayudar a la URSS e Inglaterra es defender América [Helping the USSR and England is to defend America]". Neruda, whose anti-fascist views were well known, had become a member of the Committee to Aid Russia at War in 1941, and had recited his "Song to Stalingrad" at the Teatro del Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas" on September 30, 1941. "Song to Stalingrad" was printed and posted on walls all over Mexico City. - Adam Feinstein, Pablo Neruda: A Passion for Life (Bloomsbury, 2004), p. 160. Bookseller Inventory # 21975
