The Consulate General of Chile held a book launch of “Tú Eres una agua de cien ojos," by the late Chilean poet and Nobel laureate Gabriela Mistral, at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS) on March 16.

To commemorate the 60th anniversary of Mistral’s death, the event sought to boost cultural exchange between China and Chile and bring a South American reading experience to the students of GDUFS.

“Literature and culture are another important bridge to connect two countries besides diplomacy and economic trade exchanges,” said Edmundo Bustos, the Cultural Counselor of the Chilean Embassy to China.“ As the Chilean Embassy and Consulate, we hope to continue to deepen exchanges in this area, so that our culture can be better understood.”

Mistral (1889–1957) became the first Latin American author to receive a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1945, “for her lyric poetry which, inspired by powerful emotions, has made her name a symbol of the idealistic aspirations of the entire Latin American world.” She also was a diplomat and educator.

Bustos, Carlos J. Marín, the Chilean Consul in Guangzhou, and other Guangzhou Consuls General from Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador and Peru attended the event.
