Jorge Carrera Andrade (1903-1978) served his native country of Ecuador as a diplomat to twenty countries, including the United States. He published sixty books, including forty books of poetry in Quito, Caracas, Madrid, Paris and Tokyo. Despite his service to the government and prominence as a writer, he was subject to shifting allegiances created by frequent political coups in Ecuador, and died in poverty in Quito.
