Ángel González Muñiz

Ángel González Muñiz (1925-2008) was one of the major poets of the Spanish Generation of 1950. Having lived through the Civil War and Franco’s ensuing dictatorship, he wrote much of his work ‘out of discord with the world’. In the 1970s he left Spain and moved to the US, where he taught at the University of New Mexico for many years. In his lifetime he published eleven collections of poetry and received many awards including, among others, the Queen Sofía Ibero-American Poetry Prize.
