Alberto Blest Gana

Alberto Blest Gana (1830-1920) was a Chilean novelist and diplomat. Born in Santiago, he was raised by William Cunningham Blest, an Irishman, and María de la Luz Gana Darrigrandi, a Chilean aristocrat. After studying at the Military Academy and in France, Blest Gana pursued his political and literary interests. Inspired by the works of French novelist Honoré de Balzac, Blest Gana employed European writing techniques popularized by the Realist movement, authoring ten novels on the impact of history and politics on individual lives. His book Martín Rivas (1862), the first Chilean novel, is recognized as a masterpiece of Latin American fiction, but the success of its publication led to an increased demand for his diplomatic work. After a serving as an administrative official in Colchagua province, Blest Ganawas appointed Chilean ambassador to France and Britain and served for many years. He returned to literature upon retirement and continued to publish novels until the end of his life. Blest Gana is celebrated today for his for his mastery of style and intuitive sense of sociopolitical reality.
