SOLAR, Mercedes Marin de, Chilian poet, born in Santiago, Chili, in 1804; died there, 21 December, 1866. She was a daughter of Jose Gaspar Marin and Luisa Recabarren, and showed from her youth a decided talent for poetry. Her literary reputation was first established by a poem on the death of General Portales, which was published in 1837 in "El Araucano." Soon her poems were widely known, and she and Salvador Sanfuentes (q. v.) may be called the first Chilian poets after the establishment of independence. She contributed several poems to the papers, of which the best are "Plegaria" and "Al pie de la Cruz," and published "Canto Ffinebre £ la muerte del General Portales" (Santiago, 1837); a biography of her father (1845), and "Canto g la Patria" (1857). A collection of her poems was published in a volume (Santiago, 1874). See her "Life," by M. L. Amunategui (1867). --Her children, AMELIA DE CLARO and ENRIQUE inherited her poetic talent. The latter, born in Santiago in 1844, studied in the Jesuit college, and in 1870 was elected to congress for the departments of Rancagua and Curico. He has published poems in "El Independiente," "Estrella de Chile," " Revista de Santiago " ; " Poesias Liricas" (Santiago, 1867), and "' Leyendas y Tradiciones" (1868).
