Antonio Gamoneda was born in Oviedo, Spain, in 1931. Two years after the death of his father he moved, together with his mother, to Léon at the age of three, where he still lives now.
With the collection of poems 'Sublevación inmóvil' Gamoneda started, in 1960, to have his works published. Although with this, at least regarding the period, he belongs to the 'generación poética' of the fifties, his own style expands the social realism style which was typical of the time. more »

Comments about Antonio Gamoneda
[Inebriated, he was surrounded by women ...]
Inebriated, he was surrounded by women, shadow, police, wind.
He strung veins on the heather row, put vertigo in virtue, frost's furious flower went blue in his ear.
Roses, snakes and spoons were beautiful so long as he held them in his hands.
