Tribute to Gonzalo Rojas

About the program: Book launch of the first trilingual edition of Gonzalo Roja's poems in Hindi and English,  accompanied by the original texts in Spanish. The launch will count with the presence of neurological psychiatrist  Gonzalo Rojas Mackenzie, son of the poet, and Fabienne Bradu, translator of Rojas into French and author of his  biography, who will speak about his life and work. In addition, a video will be screened in which the author can be  heard reciting his own poems.      

About the poet: Gonzalo Rojas, (born Dec. 20, 1917, Lebu, Chile—died April 25, 2011, Santiago, Chile), Chilean  poet who was among Latin America’s most influential and important literary figures. His lyrical poems focused on  women and those people affected by the 1973 military coup that brought strongman Augusto Pinochet to power.  Rojas was born into a coal-mining family and studied literature and law at the Pedagogical Institute at the University  of Chile. He was a member (1938–41) of the Surrealist group La Mandrágora, whose influence was evident in his  first volume of poetry, La miseria del hombre (1948). During the 1950s Rojas was professor of Chilean literature  and literary theory and head of the Spanish department at the University of Concepción; in 1958 he established an  elite literary group, the Congress of Writers, in Concepción. Rojas traveled (1970–71) to China as the Chilean  cultural counsel; he was later sent on a similar mission to Cuba. During the 1973 military coup in Chile, he was  exiled from the country. Thereafter he taught at universities in East Germany, Venezuela, and the U.S., finally  returning to Chillán, Chile, in 1995. Rojas’s verse collections include Contra la muerte (1964), Oscuro (1976), Del  relámpago (1981; From the Lightning, 2008), and Esquizotexto y otros poemas (1987; Schizotext and Other  Poems, 1988). He received many awards, notably the Cervantes Prize (2003) as well as Chile’s National Literature  Prize and the Queen Sophia Prize for Ibero-American Poetry, both in 1992. Upon Rojas’s death, the Chilean  government declared two days of national mourning.
