Cesar Vallejo was a great poet from Peru. He studied at the National University of San Marcos in Lima, 1916. He wrote "Los Heraldos Negros" , one of the best poetry books I´ve ever read (highly recommended).
Another great novel he wrote was called "Towards the kingdom of the Sciris", which is a short novel about an Inca story. Cesar Vallejo died in 1938, probably of malaria.
