This article analyzes on a limited plane the image of the invisible lover in the poetry of Pablo Neruda. The varied configuration can be found extensively in his poetry from his first books through his last. Beyond the biographic substratum that has led to the establishment of identities and circumstantial references for each one, in this configuration the components of desire and hostility enter into Neruda -Eros and Thanatos- in a great variety of constructions, visions or images that will allow the stimulation of an important and poorly developed dimension in the study of his poetry. In the vanguard this image of pure light appears captured in the flesh, or well hidden in the city, in a flower or, for an alchemist, in a metal according to Elémire Zolla. We may now add: also in the night, in what Neruda would call noctural clarity.
