Instituto Cervantes in Manchester and Leeds Poetry Club continues with a session dedicated to Uruguayan poetry. They will approach the prolific writer Mario Benedetti, one of the symbols of Uruguayan literature whose books have been translated into more than 20 languages. The session will be coordinated by Diana Cullell, professor at the University of Liverpool.
Mario Benedetti was born in Paso de los Toros, Uruguay, in 1920. He was a writer and journalist who belonged to the so-called Generation of ’45 in Uruguay. His extensive oeuvre encompassed different narrative, dramatic and poetic genres, which gave him a wide variety of literary registers, although he confessed to being “a poet who wrote a few novels”. His extensive poetic work includes titles such as destacan títulos como La víspera indeleble (1945), Cotidianas (1979), Viento del exilio (1981), Las soledades de Babel (1991) o El amor, las mujeres y la vida (1995).
