Pablo Neruda Foundation in Chile has found more than 20 previously unknown poems by the Nobel Prize winner.

Poems were found while cataloguing some of the poet’s manuscripts and experts have verified them as being genuine.

Pablo Neruda, who is best known for his collection Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair, died in 1973.

The newly found poems – most of which were written after 1956 – will be published later this year in Latin America and in 2015 in Spain.

They were discovered among sheaves of manuscripts in boxes and have been examined by experts, who authenticated them.

Six relate to the theme of love and the others have different themes.

They will be published on the 110th anniversary of his birth and the 90th anniversary of the publication of Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair.

Pablo Neruda is famous for both his passionate love poems and communist views.
