Happy Birthday, Don José Emilio Pacheco!

José Emilio Pacheco (Mexico City, 1939-2014) is one of the most read and recognized Mexican writers. His extensive portfolio — which included narrative, essay, journalism, and translation — was grounded in a poetry that had few comparisons during his time. He wrote prolifically, with collections that span five decades — from The Elements of the Night (1963) to The Age of Shadows and Like the Rain (both from 2009). These volumes exemplify Spanish language poetry at its best; Pacheco’s taste for bringing socially conscious poetry together with lyricism still resonates today.And of course, in prose, with his novel "Battles in the Desert" ( Las Batallas en el Desierto, Editorial Era, 1981) that marked the literary taste of thousands of young readers, and still continues and every day with greater force.
