Jacinto Benavente

a.k.a. Jacinto Benavente y Martinez

Author Code: SJBX

Born: Aug. 12, 1866 - Madrid, Spain

Died: Jul. 14, 1954 - Toledo, Spain

Educated at the Central University in Madrid, Benavente abandoned his law studies after the death of his father and devoted his time to literature. He travelled to France, Russia, and England before returning to Spain where he was employed as an editor for various periodicals. In 1892, he published his first play, but it was El Nido Ajeno (Another's Nest) in 1894 which shot him to fame with the public. He went on to produce numerous plays over the ensuing years, often with a satirical element and witty dialogue. In 1913, he became a member of the Spanish Academy and in 1920 was appointed director of Teatro Espanol, the Spanish National Theatre. Benavente was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1922 and is doubtless one of the most important Spanish playwrights of the 20th century. His later works were more conservative and sentimental in nature. During the Spanish civil war, Benavente, a staunch monarchist and supporter of Franco, was held under house arrest by the Republicans. Many of his plays were subsequently translated into English and have enjoyed popularity on Broadway, such as Saturday Night, which ran for over two years. His other works include Teatro Fantastico (1892), Teatro Feminista (1898), La Gata de Angora (1900), No Fumadores (1904), Rosas de Otono (1905), El Marido de su Virida (1908), Caridad (1911), La Cenicienta (1919), La Otra Honra (1924), Literatura (1931), La Infanzona (1945) and Almas Prisoneras (1953).
