Spanish avant-garde poet of the twentieth century. His works, which contain elements of Futurism, Dadaism, and Surrealism, include Melos Melancolia and Antologia.
He grew up in a community that was saturated with writers. His father, in fact, was a published poet.
He co-founded the short-lived Postism movement.
He was married to Laura Lacheroy, a French artist.
His poetic innovation can be compared to that of American beatnik author Allen Ginsberg.
