Juan Valera

a.k.a. Juan Valera y Alcala-Galiano

Author Code: SJVX

Born: Oct. 18, 1824 - Cabra, Cordoba, Spain

Died: Apr. 18, 1905 - Madrid, Spain

Educated at Malaga and the University of Granada, Valera received his degree in law in 1845. Shortly after he embarked on a diplomatic career that would span almost 50 years. His interests, however, also included literature and he began to write as a youth, publishing his first poems in a Malaga newspaper in 1839. He traveled the world as a diplomat, holding various posts and rose to the rank of Ambassador. In 1859, he also worked as an editor for El Contemporareo, a liberal journal based in Madrid. Valera produced some of Spain's best literature, much of which was produced during the 1870's when he took a leave of absence from his diplomatic duties. His best work is undoubtedly Pepita Jimenez, which appeared in 1874 and which has subsequently been translated into most major languages. Valera was elected to the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences in 1900. His other works include The Illusion of Doctor Faustino (1874), Dona Luz (1891), Don Braulio (1892), Juanita the Long (1895), Morsamor (1899) and Commander Mendoza (1905).
