Leopoldo Marechal

Biography

Leopoldo Marechal was born in 1900 in Buenos Aires. His maternal grandfather was a Paris Communard. Marechal considered himself a revolutionary and was a socialist in his youth and, later, an ardent Peronist. He started his literary career as an avant-garde poet but worked as a schoolteacher and journalist, before working for the government. His support of Peronism meant that he was ignored by both writers and critics. This is a pity, for Adán Buenosayres is of one the finest city novels; fortunately, it has been recently translated into English. Cortázar called its publication an extraordinary event in Argentinian letters. He died in 1970.
