I remember a creature who loves music and knows nothing about it: she loves music like a reader loves good literature.

Gabriela Mistral (1889 - 1957) was a Chilean poet, teacher, activist and the first Latin American author to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1945: she remains the only Latin woman rewarded in this category.

Although she had no formal education after the age of 12, Mistral became a prolific and beloved poet, as well as a widely respected instructor. After his retirement, he taught abroad, worked for the League of Nations, taught at several American and European universities, and served as consul in several foreign posts. She was a great friend of Pablo Neruda, her fellow Chilean poet, whom she met in Madrid and also a winner of the Nobel Prize for literature.

Gabriela Mistral's poems mix American and European cultures and address themes such as death, children and motherhood. Among his most famous poems are "Su Nombre es Hoy", "Piececitos de Niño", "Balada", "Todas Íbamos um Ser Reinas", "La Oración de la Maestra", "El angel da guardian", "Decálogo del Artista ," and " La Flor del Aire ".

Almost half a century after Gabriela Mistral's death, her presence can still be felt throughout Chile. There is no city in this country that does not have a street, square or school named after her... and her poems and essays are part of school programs.

This document by Gabriela Mistral was part of an autograph album kept by a great New York collector who worked at the UN when Gabriela lived near New York.

Gabriela Mistral is probably the best-known writer on the South American continent and a legend in Chile. Internationally recognized for her Nobel Prize in literature, her documents available to private collectors are very rare, even more so when they are handwritten. Mysterious, the content attracts attention and the paper is in good condition.
