Jesús Sepúlveda is one of the leading Latin American poets emerged in the late 1980’s.  He is the author of eight collections of poetry and three books of essays, including his green-anarchist manifesto The Garden of Peculiarities (Buenos Aires, 2002), and his book on Latin American poetry Poets on the Edge (Boca Raton, 2016).  In 2013 his selected poems were collected in Poemas de un bárbaro published in Santiago de Chile, and in 2015 his most recent poetry collection Secoya was published in New York.  Sepúlveda’s work has been published in more than fifteen countries and partially translated into eight languages, leading him to participate in many international poetry festivals and poetry readings throughout the world.  His third poetry collection Hotel Marconi was made into a film in his native Chile in 2009.  He currently lives in Eugene (USA), where he teaches at the University of Oregon.
