MORENO VILLA, José.

Carambas. (I.a serie [– 3.a serie]).

First edition of the complete series of Moreno Villa’s Carambas. The poet and art historian José Moreno Villa was born in Malaga in 1887 (d. 1955). He belonged to the poetic generation intermediate between that of ’98 and that of ’27; his major influence was Juan Ramón Jiménez. His autobiography Vida en claro (Mexico City, 1944) is especially interesting for his years in the Residencia de Estudiantes, 1917-37, where he came into contact with Lorca and others of the Generación del 27. He emigrated to Mexico in 1937.
