‘Venezuela has a generation of poets and poetesses who have been responsible for cultivating the love for what is ours, through their verses that defend the joy and beauty of the daily life of a people who resist in the face of injustice,’ the president tweeted.

The Venezuelan State decreed May 17 National Poetry Day, in commemoration of the birthday of the writer, humorist and journalist Aquiles Nazoa (1920-1976).

‘Aquiles Nazoa was born 101 years ago, the poet who was touched the soul of the noble people, as the bearer of the necessary word and the distinguished example of Venezuela that rises with optimism above hardships. Long live his cultural legacy,’ Maduro wrote on Twitter.

Venezuela celebrated the National Poetry Day in 2020 for the first time, a day dedicated to honor the cultural legacy of Nazoa, whom the State granted the condition of Patrimonial Bearer of the Nation in his centenary.
