The Chilean poet Gonzalo Rojas, who died in Santiago on 25 April at the age of 93, was regarded as one of Latin America’s greatest modern writers. He won numerous literary prizes, including the 2003 Cervantes Prize. Born in 1917, Rojas was forced into exile for some years after the 1973 military coup led by AugustoPinochet. His death was described as a “great loss for Chilean literature” by the country’s Education Minister Joaquin Lavin.
Rojas produced a huge body of work, with his poems translated into several languages. His works included The Misery of Man, Against Death, Dark and On Lightning.
