Pablo Neruda (July 12, 1904 – September 23, 1973) was the pen and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet-diplomat Neftali Ricardo Reyes Basoalto. He was responsible for several poems, including Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.
KGB agent Ramón Gálvez Mena briefly quoted Neruda on Central America being "Land as Slim as a Whip, Hot as Torture," when meeting with the private military company Militaires Sans Frontières for the first time in Colombia.

Ramón Gálvez Mena: Well, then, allow me to get straight to the point. "Land as Slim as a Whip, Hot as Torture." // Kazuhira Miller: That's the Chilean poet, Neruda... // Gálvez: Central America is the navel of the American Continents, bridging North and South. We want this land.
