(b 1931 )

Born at Arcos de la Frontera (Cádiz) in 1931, Carlos Murciano is an economist and has lived in Madrid since 1956. In 1987 he resigned from his position with an international company to devote himself to literature. Author of more than a hundred books, his creative activity has centred on poetry and shorter narratives, works that have brought him, among other awards, the National Poetry Prize (1970) and the National Children’s Literature Prize (1982). In 1997 he won the International Antonio Machado Prize in Collioure, France, and in 2000 the Atlántida International Prize from a jury made up of poets from five different countries. Musicologist, art critic, literary critic and translator, he is a member or corresponding member of the Royal Andalusian Academies of San Dionisio (Jerez de la Frontera), San Romualdo (San Fernando), San Telmo (Málaga), Hispano-Americana (Cádiz) and of Sciences, Arts and Letters (Córdoba), as well as of the Belgian-Spanish Academy of History, the Venezuelan Academies of History and of Language, and of the Mexican Society of Geography and Statistics. In 1982 His Majesty the King awarded him the Naval Cross of Merit First Class. He holds the Grand Cross of the Military and Hospitallers’ Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem (1983) and of the Andrés Bello Order of the Republic of Venezuela (1986). In 1989 he was created a Knight of the Imperial Monastery of Yuste. He holds the Gold Medal and other positions of honour in his native city and in Fontiveros, the birth-place of St John of the Cross. His works have been translated into ten other languages.
