Becquer, Gustavo Adolfo Becquer, one of the most beloved poets of the Spanish language, was born in Sevilla (Spain) on February 17, 1836.

Although he was still unknown when he died in Madrid 34 years later, his short stories and poems (Rimas y Leyendas) made his spirit immortal.

If he were physically immortal, as he is in my novel Becquer Eternal, today would be his birthday.

Happy Birthday Becquer!

  1. Happy Birthday from me too. I’m grateful to all the writers who have gone before and left us a rich heritage.
