Sonetos de la Muerte
The Sonnets of Death were inspired by the suicide of Mistral's former lover, Romelio Ureta, in which she claims for his love, argues jealousy and discusses their reunion after their deaths. However Mistral's relationship with Ureta is a matter of significant controversy. It is claimed by Chilean experts, such as Cedomil Goic, that the publication of the Sonnets of Death marks the beginning of modern poetry in Chilean literature.
