Take physic, pomp

Mario Benedetti (1920 – May 17 2009)

Some sad news today. Mario Benedetti, Uruguayan poet, novelist and author of one of the finest books ever in the Spanish language (in my opinion at least) ‘La Tregua’ has died today aged 88. I’ve noted before that non-Spanish speakers are often unaware of the man and his work, so here’s the wiki English language page to give some bare bones. However in the Spanish language and especially in Latin America his work is justly famous.
QEPD, Mario Benedetti.
