Peruvian Poet Blanca Varela Dies

LIMA – Award-winning Peruvian poet Blanca Varela died Thursday at her residence in Lima, members of the household confirmed to Efe. She was 82.

Varela was born in Lima in 1926 and started writing poetry in the mid-1940s while studying at San Marcos University in the capital. A few years later she moved to Paris, where she got to know such figures at Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Michaux and Giacometti.

In 1959 she published her first volume of poetry, “Ese puerto existe,” followed in 1963 by “Luz de dia” and in 1971 by “Valses y otras confesiones.”

Varela was honored in 2007 with Spain’s Queen Sofia Prize for Ibero-American Poetry.

She had also been awarded the Octavio Paz Prize in Poetry and Essay in 2001 and was the first woman to win the Federico Garcia Lorca City of Granada International Poetry Prize in 2006. EFE
