Short biography
Information from the Dutch Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
De schrijver Carlos Fuentes is in een ziekenhuis in Mexico-Stad overleden. De 83-jarige auteur gold als een van de belangrijkste literatoren in het Spaans taalgebied. Het bericht over zijn dood werd dinsdag via Twitter bevestigd door president Calderón, die Fuentes omschrijft als 'schrijver en universeel Mexicaan'.

Fuentes en generatiegenoten als Colombiaan Gabriel Garcia Márquez en Peruaan Mario Vargas Llosa vestigden de aandacht op de Latijns-Amerikaanse cultuur in een periode waarin het grootste deel van de regio werd bestuurd door dictators. In een interview met de Volkskrant zei Fuentes in 2006 dat een goed schrijver alles moet bekritiseren. 'Niet alleen zijn vijanden, maar ook zijn vrienden. Juist zijn vrienden!'

In 1987 werd Fuentes' werk bekroond met de Cervantes Prijs. Zijn laatste roman, De wil en het lot, verscheen in 2010
