Chilean poet, diplomat, and Nobel Prize winner.
He studied French at the Universidad de Chile and planned to become a teacher, but ended up devoting most of his time and attention to poetry.
He frequently wrote his poetry in green ink, as he considered green to be his color of hope.
His mother, Rosa Basoalto, died within two months of his birth.
He received the 1953 Stalin Peace Prize and was an ardent supporter of Joseph Stalin until he learned of the Soviet dictator's Great Purges.
