This collection of poems, divided into phases corresponding to a trek to Macchu Picchu, offer various allusions towards the beginning of civilization. Some may perceive Neruda's language as religious, as much of the imagery included conjures up similarities to the Bible and creation of Man. However, the compilation additionally highlights the need for satisfaction in love and self-purpose, and the role that ancient lands serve in the process of self discovery. Neruda brings into question, as well as appreciation, the way in which we honor indigenous territories and the histories behind them.
