Carlos de Rokha (1920–1962) was a Chilean poet and writer.


The work of Charles of Rokha is collected in only four publications.

  • Prophetic song to the First World, 1944.
  • The visible order, 1956.
  • Memorial and keys, 1964.
  • Pavana Rooster and the harlequin, 1967 (second edition, 2002).

Enrique Lihn refers to the low coverage of the work of Carlos in the following words: "The poetry of Charles of Rokha is one that would leave historiara gainful if, indeed, the whole of our literature. With its own characteristics and distinct from the work recorded Rokha all-expressive formal concerns that have contributed to the development of a small but brilliant literary tradition."
