Mexico City. - In digital interview from Spain, Gunther Pfeiffer Castanedo, medical and literary scholar, speaks of Personario encyclopedia. The names of Neruda: "I have since 1971 Neruda reading. I do not know exactly when specifying began to study. But since then, almost from my youth began to alternate reading of his poems with biographical and critical works on the Chilean poet. As for the number of volumes that form elPersonario, calculated to be about fifteen or sixteen, as there are letters like D, E, F, or K, which fail to form a single volume. I am committed to write one volume per year and my editor to keep up with me, this would make the second decade of this century the work is completed. "

An unavoidable topic in the interview was the announcement Clarín.cl exhumation of Neruda, to physician and researcher Castanedo Pfeiffer: "it would be a huge shock to think that Matilde Urrutia had quieted what necessarily have known this murder has occurred . Think that would be stopped by economic interests to overturn all his subsequent actions. In addition, I also think that left Chile when he wanted and how he wanted, and that Spain was the literary agent Carmen Balcells, would not have had that problem generating the copyrights have continued to arrive to another country. So what could have lost his complaint had been the property, works of art and precious, sentimental objects, of course, and then have to frame what is now the Foundation, but, you see, also at this point contradictions are possible. "

MC. - Dr. Francisco Velasco published "Dictionary. Neruda through their metaphors "(1984). 27 years after the first letter you published the encyclopedia: "Personario. The names of Neruda "(2011). How did the idea?, Did you know the brief dictionary of Dr. Velasco?

GC. - I know the splendid work of Dr. Francisco Velasco, but our lines of work are quite different. While Dr. Velasco verses of Neruda gathers around a series of concepts and names in alphabetical order, my work spans more exclusively to persons who surrounded the poet or quoted, trying to score not only quotations from the poems of Neruda but also all those vital matches or otherwise that might have been related.

MC. - "Personario" is a long-term project, a letter will work on average per year. How did you convince the director of Sin Index monumental editions publish your research?, Is there interest in Chile to co-publish or distribute your encyclopedia Neruda?

GC. - The chief editor is Iturriaga Diego and is a hard working and qualified. Although the editorial is young, has a spirit of future, so when we talk about the project was enthusiastic about the idea of an effort that would lead to a lengthy work in time thought that over the next twelve or thirteen we had the obligation to publish a volume per year and you might get this work identified in the documentation Neruda not flinch at all. As for the interest of Chile in the project, we have had some contacts with publishers in that country, but at the moment there is nothing concrete.

MC. - How many years have you spent studying the biography and poetry of Neruda, how many years will it take to get to the letter Z "Personario"?

GC. - Since 1971 I've been reading Neruda. I do not know exactly when specifying began to study. But since then, almost from my youth began to alternate reading of his poems with biographical and critical works on the Chilean poet. As for the number of volumes that form the Personario, calculated to be about fifteen or sixteen, as there are letters like D, E, F, or K, which fail to form a single volume. I am committed to write one volume per year and my editor to keep up with me, this would make the second decade of this century the work is completed.

MC. - What kind of reception did the first two volumes of "Personario" among readers and scholars Neruda?, Did you get any complaints about the exclusions to limit the encyclopedia to people and countries?

GC. - Received rave reviews by students of Paul. Highlight public including Giuseppe Bellini private and friendly and sent me Edmundo Olivares and has been a friendly gesture for a possible disappointment. I have also received many suggestions. All these well-intentioned and I have tried to take into account, while retaining the original project. As for extending the standard of entries is limited to people who were related to the Chilean poet and countries visited or mentioned in his work, I discarded because the project is too broad to have risen to other aspects as would have done including their books or their homes or poetic objects.

MC. - What will you do with the new data that were in the pipeline?, Do you think in a revised and expanded second edition?, Or is a job that must continue Nerudian future generations?

GC. - For now, any new data that I know of that has not been included in the edited, write it down in my database. To recognize what is new in the research I write redlining. This has resulted in some of my work connoisseurs who have agreed to the new data, I ask for the red letters. It is my intention that the other mode encyclopedic work, my work could serve as a basis for other scholars to expand the knowledge that I have set, amend, improve or simply corrected the errors.

MC. - Who is your favorite character from Neruda's friends?, Who are your biographers and literary critics header?

GC. - Neruda had many special friends and that one circumstance and another, came to have an important relationship in your life. Thomas Lake, Ruben Azocar, Alvaro Hinojosa, Homer Maple, Volodia Teitelboim, Jorge Edwards, Miguel Hernández, Federico García Lorca ... There are so many to pick one it seems to betray the rest. From biographies, David Schidlowsky the research point out as a very bright, with a large collection of unpublished materials. The Edmund Olivares, the most brilliantly written. The Hernan Loyola, as probably the most internalized the poetic world and the life of the poet. But we must do justice to Margarita Aguirre, being the first, that of Teitelboim, goodbye, poet, Edwards. Among the documentation work would not forget Abraham Quezada is doing a splendid job with the epistolary; critics as Eulogio Suarez Oses and many others that I apologize right now for not citing them.

MC. - The Port Authority of Santander published your book: "Neruda and boats" (2010). Gunther, live beachfront coincidentally your father was a railroad;? Someday write the essay: Neruda and trains?

GC. - I love it. Neruda's poetry has numerous references to items rail, bridges, rails, locomotives. He was, during his second trip to China, a tour in the Siberian endless; toured Europe kilometers of roads and it would be nice when finished with Personario devote some time to that work.

MC. - The magazine Neruda returned your text: "Olga Margarita Burgos. An unexpected Centennial "(2007), about the unknown Neruda girlfriend between 1932 and 1933. Why are you interested in the poet's emotional relationships?

GC. - Met in Spain Olga's granddaughter Margarita Santiago Burgos by Vivanco. He refused to stop publishing the story of her grandmother. Personally told me, without giving me permission to publish it. Porfié lot, but only when we discovered that Olga and I shared the same profession-or-softened dentists to give me a partial permission to publish some things in a magazine that I edited for dental professionals Santander. Perhaps to prove that there was a morbid interest in exposing data on the relationship between the poet and the dentist gave me permission to publish after the whole epistles and other data. While Neruda magazine, published an article, you can find a longer version in The Machinist of generation, Malaga magazine.

MC. - Gunther, sorry but an unavoidable topic of our interview will be next exhumation of the Chilean poet. What is your opinion on the legal and journalistic investigation of the alleged murder of Pablo Neruda?

GC. - This is a tough and necessary. Your challenge is to think that Neruda was killed would not change my opinion about who had committed the murder, but it would be a huge shock to think that Matilde Urrutia had quieted what necessarily have known this murder has occurred. Think that would be stopped by economic interests to overturn all his subsequent actions. In addition, I also think that left Chile when he wanted and how he wanted, and that Spain was the literary agent Carmen Balcells, would not have had that problem generating the copyrights have continued to arrive to another country. So what could have lost his complaint had been the property, works of art and precious, sentimental objects, of course, and then have to frame what is now the Foundation, but, you see, also at this point There are contradictions.

This speaking of the general considerations. The medical issue has been studied extensively in the work of Mario Amoros and yours. But it seems easy to draw conclusions inconclusive state cancer spread. The testimony of Manuel Araya and Corbalá Martinez on the fitness of Paul are inconsistent with other accounts of people that surrounded the poet in 1973 or in the last days, and displaying different views. However I think the judge exhumation Mario Chariot will order is made, it's good to know what happened, if this does not hurt your family. Hopefully that sheds light and clarity to this issue as murky. Disappear all speculation.

MC. - Finally, what do you think, 40 years later, when reading Cantalao Foundation bylaws, Neruda's last wish?

GC. - Clearly distinguish between the Foundation and the current Cantalao Pablo Neruda Foundation is essential, as they are two different things. I think the current Pablo Neruda Foundation is not the exact model in which the poet thought. I think he always wanted a foundation to care more for artists. His goal, at the end of his life, was to create a space where poets, painters, sculptors could go to create free and rest, in my opinion. The statutes of the Foundation Cantalao also cited the possibility that he was veiled by unions, universities and writers themselves, although the president himself had been appointed by the poet himself and this will has not been respected.

The Pablo Neruda Foundation now has healthy aspects, such as magazine publishing, creating poetry workshops and other cultural aspects, but also has dark areas, such as the reconciliation of social thought, political and intimate with some actions Neruda Foundation. I mean, Paul probably would not have approved some of the interventions of the Foundation that bears his name, although in the sixth article Cantalao project specified that its revenues would be placed shares of capitalism as buying shares, real estate transaction, etcetera. Moreover Foundation relations with people linked to the late military regime, if these rumors are true, opposes all logic.

MC. - What kind of reception did the first two volumes of "Personario" among readers and scholars Neruda?, Did you get any complaints about the exclusions to limit the encyclopedia to people and countries?
