Other literary forms
Roberto Bolaño (boh-LAWN-yoh) was primarily a poet. He published his first chapbook, Reinventar al amor (reinventing love), in 1976. In 1979, he edited a collection of poetry, Muchachos desnudos bajo el arcoiris de fuego (naked guys under a rainbow of fire), which reflects the work of an aesthetic movement he cofounded. He continued writing and publishing poetry until his death. Bolaño also wrote reviews, journalistic columns, critical articles, commentaries on literature and society, and autobiographical essays. Some of these are collected in the volume Entre paréntesis: Ensayos, artículos, y discursos, 1998-2003 (2004; in parentheses: essays, articles, and speeches).
