Gustavo Adolfo Becquer

Author Code: SGAB

Born: Feb. 17, 1836 - Seville, Spain

Died: Dec. 22, 1870 - Toledo, Spain

Educated at the College of San Telmo, Becquer showed literary talent at an early age. The orphaned son of an artist, he also displayed artistic talent. While still at school he collaborated with his friend Narcisco Campillo on writing and presenting a play, Los Conjurados. He went to Madrid in 1854 and a friend , and future biographer, Ranon Correa, helped him to publish his first story, El Caudillo de las Manos Rojas. In 1857, he edited and illustrated a series on churches, Los Templos de Espana. From 1861 he began working for the newspaper El Contemporaneo, which he used as vehicle for his poetry and tales. Becquer suffered from ill health throughout his life and after his brother and closest friend, Valeriano, died, the shock was too much for him and he passed away only 3 months later - only 35 years old. Almost all of Becquer's works were published posthumously and included the Rimas, a collection of short lyric poems which achieved wide praise.
