About the Author
Raúl Zurita, winner of the Chilean National Poetry Prize, is one of the best known poets of Latin America. His work is part of a revolution in poetic language, that began in the 1970s and sought to find new forms of expression, radically different from those of Pablo Neruda. The challenge was to confront the contemporary epoch, with its particular forms of violence, including violence done to language.
Mariela Griffor grew up in Santiago, Chile. Her childhood in the quiet home of her grandparents came to an abrupt halt when Augusto Pinochet and his fascist regime's coup d'etat overthrew the democratic government of Salvador Allende in 1973. Always devoted to poetry, which has sustained her through two decades of turmoil, Mariela is currently living with her husband and two young daughters in Grosse Point, Michigan, where, among other writing and publishing activities, she recently established the not-for-profit Marick Press, specializing in publishing poetry. Her first poetry collection, Exiliana, was published this year (Luna Press).
