Renato Leduc Wikipedia
Renato Leduc (November 16, 1897 – August 2, 1986) was a Mexican poet and journalist.
Leduc, son of a French father and a Mexican mother, served as a signalist in Pancho Villa's División del Norte, and studied law at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. He wrote poetry, stories and chronicles for several newspapers and cultural magazines, before he travelled to Paris by order of the Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público in the mid 1930s, where he met several surrealistic writers, and lived for ten years, during World War II. For a short time, he was married to the British artist and writer Leonora Carrington, whom he met in the embassy in Lisbon, on her flight from the Nazis, after they had arrested Max Ernst in France.
Leduc was a good friend of Elena Poniatowska, Federico Cantú Garza, Luis Cardoza y Aragón, Octavio Paz, Agustín Lara and Fernando Leal, to whom he dedicated his sonnet Mixcalco (1925).
María Félix, one of Agustín Lara’s wives, was Leduc’s partner.El aula, 1929
