César Vallejo was born in a small town in the Peruvian Andes. He published Trilce, a collection of seventy-seven poems, in 1923, shortly before he immigrated to Europe, where he divided his time between Spain and Russia, writing about Communism and asserting that the destruction of the capitalist world, including himself, was the only way to redeem humankind. He died in Paris.
