High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Julia de Burgos (February 17, 1914 - July 6, 1953) is considered by many as the greatest poet to have been born in Puerto Rico, and along with Gabriela Mistral, is considered as one of the greatest poets of Latin America. She was also an advocate for the independence of Puerto Rico and an ardent civil rights activist for women and African/Afro-Caribbean writers. Julia de Burgos was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico on February 17, 1914. She was raised in a poor section of Carolina called Barrio Santa Cruz. Her familys poverty did not keep her from developing a love for nature and her country. She was very fortunate to be able to attend school, since she came from a very large family of thirteen children.
