Eduardo Lizalde, a poet and writer, died at the age of 93. He was a man of literature and music, having studied at the Higher School of Music before changing to writing.

When he was just 18 years old, his first poetry was published in EL UNIVERSAL. For his 27, having enlisted as a communist party militant, the writer conceived his debut piece, “La mala hora.” Eduardo Lizalde Faras, a cultural promoter, announced the news. So yet, neither the reason for his death nor the location where he will be shrouded are known.

Eduardo Lizalde Chávez, a writer and poet, was born in Mexico City on July 14, 1929. He studied philosophy and letters at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where he later became a professor of Spanish, Mexican, and Latin American literature.

Lizalde had a tight association with music as well, since he was a great connoisseur of opera and also studied at the old INBA’s Higher School of Music.

His first collection of poems, “La mala hour,” was written with Enrique González Rojo Arthur and Marco Antonio Montes de Oca, with whom he formed the movement of “poeticism,” but it was not regarded an accomplishment by Lizalde himself, because he condemned the movement in “Autobiography of a Failure.”

Among his works are “El tigre en la house,” which earned him the Xavier Villaurrutia Prize in 1970, and “La zorra enferma,” which earned him the Aguascalientes National Poetry Prize.
