Description Author Bio Description Poetry. Latinx Studies. Translated by Tony Frazer. The poem is also a sustained lyric effusion of a kind that Huidobro had never produced before, and it marks the point at which his work moves on from the barnstorming avant-garderie of his younger years to a more mature style, albeit one influenced by surrealism, a movement which Huidobro had previously attacked. It is also the last time that Huidobro was to adopt the god-like narrative persona that occurs in his earlier work.
Originally from an upper-class Santiago family, Huidobro was fortunate to have the means to support himself and his family while he found his artistic way. After an early phase writing in a quasi-symbolist style in his native city, he moved to Paris and threw himself into the local artistic milieu with a passion, quickly becoming a notable figure, publishing two full-sized collections and four chapbooks in , and a French-language selected poems in Influenced initially by Apollinaire, Huidobro quickly befriended both forward-looking French writers such as Reverdy, Cocteau and Radiguet, and the Spanish expatriate artists, including Picasso and Juan Gris.
He was to reach his artistic maturity in with the publication of two masterpieces: the long poem, Altazor, and the book-length prose-poem Temblor de cielo. Two further collections followed during his lifetime, both published in Santiago in While he also published successful novels and plays, it is for his poetry that he is best remembered today.
Altazor/Temblor del cielo
Estamos lejos, en el fin de los fines, en donde un hombre colgado por los pies de una estrella se balancea en el espacio con la cabeza hacia abajo. La boca de un hombre amado sobre un tambor. Destruirlo todo, todo, a bala y a cuchillo. El mar puede apenas ser mi teatro en ciertas tardes.
