Lázaro Tello

México City


I was born in Nochixtlán, Oaxaca, in 1986, but I have lived most of my life in Mexico City. I studied Creative Writing at the Autonomous University of Mexico City (UACM, its acronym in Spanish). My passions and interests are literary research and poetic creation. I try to spend my time between verse writing and academic work, along the lines of my most admired Dámaso Alonso and José María Micó. My genres of choice are poetry and literary essay, the first one because of metaphor supremacy, the other because of argumentative fluidity. I’m an avid reader of poetry of the Spanish Golden Age and of poetry of the 20th century. I love chess, coffee and of course mezcal .
