Eduardo Anguita Cuellar was a Chilean poet, who was awarded the Chilean National Prize for Literature in 1988.
Eduardo Anguita was raised in San Bernardo, before integrating the College of the Augustine Fathers in Santiago. At 16, he began law studies in the Catholic University of Chile, which he dropped three years later in order to dedicate himself to literature. From then on, he collaborated to many reviews and newspapers, such as Ercilla, Plan, Atenea, La Nacion, El Mercurio, etc. He also worked in advertising agencies and in various radios.
His first poems were published in 1934 under the name Transito al fin, and translated in English in 1942. A member of the Generation of 38, Eduardo Anguita started his literary career during a period marked by Surrealism and Creationism, a movement headed by Vicente Huidobro, to whom he became a close friend.
