Benedetti, Mario

▪ Uruguayan writer
born September 14, 1920, Paso de los Toros, Uruguay

      Uruguayan writer who is best known for his short stories.

      Benedetti was born to a prosperous family of Italian immigrants. His father was a viniculturist and a chemist. At age four the boy was taken to Montevideo, where he received a superior education at a private school. He was deeply affected by his early experience of the capital city. Benedetti began his literary career by publishing poetry, but he soon turned to the short story and the novel. In these he painted a realistic and critical portrait of the ascendant Uruguayan middle class, to which he belonged. His most accomplished stories appeared in the collection Montevideanos (1959; “Montevideans”), a title that recalls James Joyce (Joyce, James)'s Dubliners. Like Joyce, Benedetti is enthralled by urban life, and he has become the chronicler of the Uruguayan capital's bourgeoisie, though, unlike Joyce, Benedetti often remains at a descriptive level lacking depth. But his works became best-sellers in Uruguay, and by the 1960s his reputation had spread throughout Latin America. His novel La tregua (1960; The Truce) was widely read, as was his allegorical novel El cumpleaños de Juan Angel (1971; Juan Angel's Birthday). Benedetti had the misfortune of peaking as a writer at the same time as Carlos Fuentes (Fuentes, Carlos), Gabriel García Márquez (García Márquez, Gabriel), Mario Vargas Llosa (Vargas Llosa, Mario), and others who brought about what is known as the “boom of the Latin American novel,” and with whom he could not compete.

      In 1959 Benedetti went to New York City on a fellowship, and during the 1960s he traveled a great deal. Beginning in the late 1960s, he spent lengthy periods in Cuba. A supporter of Castro's regime, he eventually based himself in Cuba, where his works took a more political turn, particularly after the 1973 military coup in Uruguay. Some time later he moved to Madrid. Subsequently Benedetti published Despistes y franquezas (1989; “Errors and Sincere Statements”) and La borra del café (1992; “Coffee Grounds”). In addition to short stories, novels, and poetry, Benedetti wrote plays and essays. A collection of his short stories was translated into English as Blood Pact and Other Stories (1997).
