The Poems of Jaime Gil de Biedma by Jaime Gil de Biedma
Jaime Gil de Biedma y Alba (Nov. 13, 1929-Jan. 8, 1990) was a Spanish post-Civil War poet. He was born in Nava de la Asunción on November 13, 1929. He stopped writing poetry some ten years before his death. He insisted that the character he had invented, the poet Jaime Gil de Biedma, as opposed to the respectable bourgeois businessman of the same name, had nothing left to say and he refused to go on playing the role of a poet in literary society.
