Antonio Machado


ANTONIO MACHADO (1875–1939), one of Spain’s and Europe’s great poets, spent much of his life as ‘a modest teacher in a country school’. His poetry was banned under Franco, but under a pseudonym, he wrote powerfully in defence of liberal views. In 1939 he left Spain for France, where he died.
