Xavier Villaurrutia
Xavier Villaurrutia (1903-1950) was one of the only writers in Latin America in the first half of the century who was openly gay. He was a major poet who wrote essentially one book of poems, yet his influence has been enormous. He took the prosody and many of the themes of Spanish modernismo and stipped its high-flown rhetoric to the natural, condensed and playful speech of the Spanish vanguardia.
