"The poetry of Jaime Gil de Biedma, the most original and influential Spanish poet since the civil war, is finally, after years of censorship under Generalissimo Franco, reaching a huge audience in Spain. His poems capture the mood of post-civil-war Spain and of cosmopolitan Barcelona, where the poet belonged to a celebrated literary movement within the antifascist resistance. His poems are ironic and urban, satiric and sensually Mediterranean. The maudit poet profiled in his poetry - defiant, self-mocking, with a nostalgic tango in the background - has become a legendary figure in the long struggle of the Spanish to emerge from the dictatorship modern and free."
