Poet and author Eduardo Lizalde (b. México, 1929) is now the author of nine books of lyric poetry, a novel as well as numerous stories and shorter novels and so is one of the most well known writers in Mexican contemporary literature. Together with Gonzales Rojo, he founded the literary movement called 'Poeticismo' in 1948 which sought to break with, as they saw it, the predominant lack of clarity and imprecision of expression and in the structure of contemporary lyric poetry. Lizalde first works reflect Marxist influence, however he later devotes himself to extensive thoughts on language, to a search which borders on the metaphysical for the essence and nature of words. He was a co-founder of quite a number of newspapers and periodicals, among them the daily newspaper 'El Universal' and has been distinguished with the Mexican National Prize for Literature and Language in 1988, the Iberio-Mexican Ramón López Velarde Prize in 2002 and the Premio Sabines-Gatien Lapointe in 2005. At present he is General Director of the Mexican State Library. Nació en la ciudad de México en 1929. Poeta, narrador, ensayista.
