A new exhibit in the Chilean capital honors Pablo Neruda, Mario Vargas Llosa, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and the eight other Spanish-language writers who have received the Nobel Prize in literature.

The Santiago headquarters of the Telefonica Chile Foundation is hosting the event.

The exhibit begins with materials relating to Spain’s Jose de Echegaray, the first hispanophone writer to win the Nobel Prize, in 1904, and ends with 2010 laureate Vargas Llosa.

Another display is devoted to Chile’s Gabriela Mistral, one of only 14 women to win the Nobel Prize in literature, and includes first editions of her poetry collections “Tala” (1938) and “Sonetos de la muerte y otros poemas elegiacos” (1952).

Along with books and manuscripts, the exhibition has memorabilia such as the 1968 suitcase-book by Nobel laureate Octavio Paz and artist Marcel Duchamp, stamps with Garcia Marquez’s effigy and paper money bearing the likenesses of Echegaray and Juan Ramon Jimenez.

The 11 Spanish-language authors to receive the Nobel Prize in literature are: Echegaray, Jacinto Benavente, Mistral, Juan Ramon Jimenez, Miguel Angel Asturias, Neruda, Vicente Aleixandre, Garcia Marquez, Camilo Jose Cela, Paz and Vargas Llosa.
