Julio Cortázar

Julio Cortázar (1914–1984) was an Argentine novelist, poet, essayist, and short-story writer. Born in Brussels, he moved permanently to France in 1951, and he gradually gained recognition as one of this century’s major experimental writers. His works reflect the influence of French surrealism, psychoanalysis, and his love of both photography and jazz, along with a strong commitment to revolutionary Latin American politics.
