Dies at 103 Nicanor Parra

Santiago de Chile / Chilean poet Nicanor Parra, creator of anti-poetry and winner of numerous literary awards, including the Cervantes Prize, has died today in Santiago, at age 103.

The death of the author of “Hojas de Parra“, “Poesía y Antipoesía“, and “Versos de Salón“, among other works, occurred at dawn on Tuesday, as confirmed by the Chilean Minister of Culture, Ernesto Ottone.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education released on his twitter account “29 quotes, phrases and artifacts of the great antipoeta, Nicanor Parra, today and forever.”

Born in San Fabián de Alico on September 5, 1914 and more than nine brothers, among them Violeta Parra, Nicanor Parra was also a professor of Physics, but he revolutionized poetry when he proclaimed, in 1954, that Poetry had been “the paradise of the solemn fool “in the last 50 years (” Poems and Antipoems “).

Among the recognitions and prizes that were awarded to him, the National Literature Prize (1969), the Juan Rulfo Latin American and Caribbean Literature Prize (1997) and the Miguel de Cervantes Prize (2011) stand out.

The last twenty years of his life were spent in his house located in the Las Cruces spa, where he also celebrated his centenary in 2014. (January 23, 2018, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
