Jaime Torres Bodet

Jaime Torres Bodet (1902–1974) was a poet, novelist and diplomat and is ranked among Mexico’s major literary figures of the past century. Mediodia (Mid-day) reveals both his love of pure form and his poetic modesty, an approach to his art bereft of all trace of exaggeration or flamboyancy. Among his many accomplishments, he published over eighteen collections of poetry and six novels, as well as literary criticism and essays. During his lifetime he was granted more than fifteen honorary doctorate degrees from universities around the world and received the Mexican National Literary Award in 1966.
