José Santos Chocano

Chocano, José Santos


Born May 14, 1875, in Lima; died Dec. 13,1934, in Santiago, Chile. Peruvian poet.

Chocano’s poetic works Soul of America (1906) and Let There Be Light! (1908) revealed traits characteristic of Spanish-American modernism of the turn of the century—the rich use of metaphor, interest in national tradition, and recognition of the prophetic mission of the poet.

Chocano led an active political life in many countries of Latin America. He took part in several risky political undertakings, and as a result he was murdered in Chile.
