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 »
