Spanish Poet Jose Antonio Muñoz Rojas Dies

ANTEQUERA, Spain – Spanish poet and writer Jose Antonio Muñoz Rojas, who would have turned 100 on Oct. 9, has died in this southern Spanish city, municipal officials told Efe.

Muñoz Rojas, winner of the 1998 National Poetry Prize for “Objetos perdidos” and the 2002 Queen Sofia Ibero-American Poetry Prize in recognition of his body of work, was one of the most important voices in contemporary Spanish poetry.

The poet, who died on Monday night, was a member of the “Generation of ‘36” and founded, along with Jose Antonio Maravall, Leopoldo Panero and Jose R. Santeiro, the Nueva Revista. He also worked on many other literary and poetry publications.

Muñoz Rojas’s poetry career began in 1929 with the publication of “Versos del retorno.”

Many other works followed over the years, including “Ardiente jinete,” “Cantos a Rosa,” “Lugares del corazon” and “Objetos perdidos,” among others.

He taught at Cambridge University and translated the works of several poets, including William Wordsworth, John Donne and T.S. Eliot, from English into Spanish.

Muñoz Rojas was also the author of several works of prose, such as “Historias de familia,” “Las cosas del campo” and “Las musarañas.” EFE
