Gabriela Mistral

Gabriela Mistral: 126th birthday

Gabriela Mistral (born April 7, 1889) was the pseudonym of Lucila Godoy Alcayaga, a Chilean poet-diplomat, educator and feminist. Gabriela Mistral was the first Latin American (and, so far, the only Latin American woman) to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, which she did 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”.
