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.

The Chilean poet is famous for both his passionate love poems and communist views.
