In he moved to Palma, Majorca. Benedetti returned to Uruguay in March following the restoration of democracy, dividing his time between Montevideo and Madrid. In the last ten years of his life he suffered from asthma and spent his winters in Madrid where it was summer in order to avoid the cold, though as his health deteriorated he eventually remained in Montevideo. He died in Montevideo on 17 May , a little after pm. He had suffered from respiratory and intestinal problems for more than a year. Before dying, he dictated to his personal secretary, Ariel Silva what would become his last poem: .
My life has been like a fraud My art has consisted In this not being noticed too much I've been as a levitator in my old age The brown sheen of the tiles Never came off my skin. For his poetry and novels Benedetti won numerous international awards. La Tregua , first published in , has since been translated into over 20 languages into English by Harry Morales and inspired the film The Truce.

Until just yesterday, death was something that happened to other people. A family guy Many things had happened on that summer of and they'd had me lie in to rest so that I would think of death. Although, it might have been better not to think… By that time we lived with mother and father on Constituyente Street number , corners of Minas and Magallanes.
Besides being my brother-in-law, Coto always was my more-than-brother, my safe haven in the midst of storms. A serious, responsible Architecture student, the descendant of an ancient, illustrious Uruguayan family, elegant, formal, utterly discreet… a gentleman.

Partly to please him, partly because I could draw with amazing ease, I went into the study of Architecture as well. But, studying, really studying, back when I was twenty, was hardly my strong point. I studied life wherever it had a pretty woman's face, an ambiance of gaiety, game or cocktails. Back where I'm from, the student who turns out to be a party lover 1 spends his life in a company more agreeable than that of books, and gets to old age, always two years short of getting his degree.
At times, and only to see his satisfied look, I tried, rather unsuccessfully, to take life seriously.
Far from losing his self-possession, Coto has always treated me with infinite patience, loving me the only way this quiet, good man is capable of loving: without passing judgement, without demanding anything, with an understanding for my somewhat derailed youth and the complicity of one who might wish he could do the same, but doesn't dare.
I think he assumed —or else I made him assume— the father's role, which dad never played in my life. As any true European, his parents, Francisco Matos and Rosa Fuentes, dreamed of sending their first-born off to Europe, so that he would study and acquire that je ne sais quoi, which was only acquired through contact with the Old World. Since one of my grand-mother Rosa's sisters lived in Paris and was childless, paperwork was taken care off, a trunk was filled with the most elegant clothes that it was possible to have made in Montevideo, and a ticket to Paris was purchased.
Without hesitation, my father, who was fourteen years old, proposed to take his brother's place. With the very little time, and the much too oversize suits, he set off, without shedding one single tear, to go out and conquer the world. Seven years later he returned, with a book-keeping Diploma, and a savoir faire which immediately won my mother over. But in , he was offered a job handling the book-keeping of a famous cabaret which had just opened in Montevideo: the Moulin Rouge.
It appears that, at first, he handled things professionally and kept his good behavior, but, as years went by, the job started to take up more and more of his time and dedication. Thus, trapped in an ambiance of pleasure, which had always fascinated him, he ended up becoming, behind mother Edelmira's back, the cabaret's proprietor. Thinking of death Many things had happened on that summer of I had shot up and had become the slenderest tall lad, all legs and arms, with a charm irresistible to women and an equally irresistible soft spot for horse tracks and race horses.
This was something that stemmed from my childhood and was a symbol of freedom, because all my school copybooks were full of drawings of horses. Between the effort this growing up demanded of my nature, the little sleep I got and the little food I took because I was dazzled with chicks, 2 I started feeling a little weak. Mamma didn't realize, because she had other problems that kept her awake at night, but Sixta —my old black nanny, who was still with us although I was rather grown up— was worried about my thinness, my pallor and my cough.
She sensed that there was something wrong with me and, in the hope that they would help me recover my strength, she would fix me egg flips. I'm still crazy about egg flip, I don't know if it is because of their flavor or because they bring back reminiscences of home and a time of careless joy.

I would hear the black woman bustling around in the kitchen, opening the cupboard doors, taking out the egg basket… crack! I remember the scheme I once thought up, so as not to offend her by saying it out loud: I asked her to whistle while she made it. Days went by and, though I tried to hide it so as not to add to the lot of the worries in our house, I was getting worse instead of better.
That unyielding cough frightened Becha. When I started getting a temperature in the afternoon, she didn't want to wait any longer and called a physician.
"montone" English translation
The doctor came, examined my pupils, and, as he concluded that my lungs had been affected, he ordered for me to stay in bed and rest, with no further ado. I heard the word tuberculosis and, all of a sudden, everything that seemed real in my life crumbled to pieces. University, Federation, friends, chicks, the racetrack, the project to become an architect and work with Coto, the hope of getting married someday and having children, the dream of owning a little farm to raise race horses.
Meanwhile, you will take care of everything because your mother —he sighed, for he had known mum for many years— the poor Edelmira! Certainly, too many things had happened on that summer of , and they'd had me lie in and rest, so that I would think of death. Oct Jun Profile last updated Apr 8, Or create a new account.
