Eugenio Montejo 

* 19.10.1938, Caracas, 委内瑞拉
05.06.2008, Valencia, 委内瑞拉

Eugenio Montejo, born in Caracas in 1938, has published numerous collections of essays and poetry in his own country.

Montejo's poetry works powerfully on the emotions by way of its life-affirming qualities. He engages with both personal loss and the negative forces in Venezuela's history yet, ultimately his argument is pantheistic: individual death is insignificant in the face of our ongoing existence in a realm where past, present and future co-exist.

In 1998 Montejo recieved Venezuela's National Prize for Literature.

International interest in Montejo's poetry grew after his poem 'La Tierra Giró para Acercarnos' was used in the film 21 grams by the Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu. A few lines from the poem are quoted by Sean Penn's character in the movie.

Eugenio Montejo died June 5th, 2008 at the age of 69 of stomach cancer.
