?locIndex 18588 Fairview, NJ Ancestry & Family History. Retrieved on April 6, 2007. '''César Abraham Vallejo Mendoza''' (March 16, 1892 – April 15, 1938) was a Peruvian poet. Although he published only three books of poetry during his lifetime, he is considered one of the great poetic innovators of the 20th century in any language. Always a step ahead of literary currents, each of his books was distinct from the others, and, in its own sense, revolutionary. Thomas Merton called him "the greatest universal poet since Dante". The late British poet, critic and biographer Martin Seymour-Smith, a leading authority on world literature, called Vallejo "...the greatest twentieth-century poet in ''any'' language." thumb Moche ceramics depicting conjoined twins.
