Biography

Juan Ramón Jiménez Mantecón was a Spanish poet who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1956.

Jiménez came from Andalusia, and he studied law in Seville, an education, he never used. Instead he began to write poems and was published two collections of these already as a 18-year-old. His father died the same year led to a depression in him, and he underwent a long course of treatment in France and later in Madrid. In 1911-12 he was again time for poetry and wrote a series of highly erotic poems. When, in the period spent in a sanatorium run by nuns, which often included in the poems, and abbess discovered his activities, he was sent away from the sanatorium.
Shortly after he was in love with Zenobia Camprubí, who was a respected translator of the Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore. Jimenez wrote during the period of a few poems that were less explicit in erotic terms, and he had plans to release some of the more forthright. This he gave, however, since Camprubí reacted with horror at the first of the books. The erotic poems were hidden and only known in 2007 when about a hundred of them were published in the collection Libros de amor (Love the book).

Instead he began to write poems on subjects such as music and color, and he wrote a prose poem about his native titled Platero y yo (Platero and I). Camprubí had been mollified, and the couple married in the U.S. in 1916. When the Spanish Civil War broke out, they went into exile first in Cuba, and later the United States and Puerto Rico. Here they settled down more permanently in 1946.

Jiménez was later a professor of Spanish language and literature at the University of Maryland near Washington DC In 1956 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature, but he could not really enjoy it when his wife, Zenobia, just three days later died of cancer. He never came over it and he died two years later.
