NICANOR PARRA, CHILEAN POET Nicanor Parra was born in 1914 in Chillan, a small town in the south of Chile. His father was a school teacher. In 1933 he entered the Instituto Pedaggico of the University of Chile, and got his degree as a teacher of mathematics and physics in 1938. Cancionero sin Nombre, his first book, appeared in 1937. After teaching in Chilean secondary schools, in 1943 he went to Brown University in the USA to continue his studies in physics. He returned to Chile in 1946. In 1952 Parra began to teach Theoretical Physics in Santiago. He created the so called anti-poetry and he read his poetry in England, France, Russia, Mexico, Cuba, and the United States. He also published several books, including one in collaboration with his great compatriot, Pablo Neruda. Parra has been nominated several times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
