I am going to speak about “Decimas ”, my favorite book. This book was written by Violeta Parra and is a autobiography in verse.
Violeta Parra is a very famous singer, painter, embroidery, ceramist and investigator of folcklore in Chile.
The book tell a story of her life narrated in poetry.
She is son of peasant and musician teacher, sister of poet and singers. His life was very sacrificed because she was very poor. She was born in San Carlos (Ñuble), in a center zone of Chile. When she had 12 years old write his first verses. In the beginning she worked in cirques and bars. Then in 1953 she begin to be more famous. In Radio Chilena she present her first compositions , songs to “ the human and to the divine”. Then she begins recitals for all Chile and participated in the Festival for the youth in Polonia and it records his first disc.
She exhibited her art around the world, in Buenos Aires Finlandia, Alemania, Italia, Francia etc… And in 1964 she exhibited en the Louvre museum.
