Gabriela Mistral


Delivered Lucila Godoy Alcayaga and better known by her pencil name of Gabriela Mistral, this Chilean poet was the 1945 receiver of the Nobel Award in Books. She also received the 1951 Chilean Country wide Prize for Books, and her Sonetos de la Muerte poetry collection gained the 1914 Juegos Florales literary competition. Her first poems, a lot of which were released in the Chilean paper El Coquimbo, consist of “Junto al Mar,” “Carta Intima,” and “Ensonaciones.” Her poetry was significantly inspired and deepened with the 1909 suicide of her friend Romelio Ureta. The little girl of instructor Juan Geronimo Godoy Villanueva and seamstress Petronila Alcayaga, she was created in Vicuna, Chile, and elevated in Montegrande. Her elder sister, Emelina Molina, was her initial instructor. She and fellow 20th-century Chilean poet Pablo Neruda both received the Nobel Award because of their literary work.
