David Huerta

Poet

David Huerta was born in Mexico City in 1949. He has published nineteen books of poems and was included in Medusario (1996), the definitive anthology of neo-baroque Latin American poetry. His collections include Cuaderno de noviembre (1976), Versión (1978), from which ‘Nine Years Later’ is taken, and Incurable (1987), a verse-novel that brought him to the forefront of critical attention. In 2006 he was awarded the Xavier Villaurrutia prize for his lifelong contribution to Mexican literature. David Huerta gave a series of readings in the UK in spring 2010 as part of a tour organised by the Poetry Translation Centre.
