Date of birth

Oct 22, 1925

"Poet, professor and literary critic. National Poetry Prize in 2003 for her collection of poems “En el Viento hacia el Mar”."

Uceda was born in Seville in 1925. She completed his doctorate in Philosphy and Letters at the University of Seville and was professor in the United States and Ireland. In 1976, she returned to Spain and settled in Galicia. She is head professor of Spanish Literature at the National Institutes of Secondary Education and Universities. Her first books, written in the 60’s, show a compromised poetry, skeptical of the religious premises of the times. In the 60’s, she embarked in a new direction, with a more reflective poetry that the critics have compared to José Hierro. Her book “En el Viento, hacia el Mar” won the National Poetry Prize in 2003. Uceda is a member of the Sevillian Royal Academy of Letters and the International Association Hispanists.
