More About Francisca Aguirre, Ana Valverde Osan, Ana Valverde Osan & Ana Valverde Osan

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Fransico Aguirre was born in Alicante, Spain, in 1930. Soon after, because her family sided with the Republic, at the end of the Civil War she had to flee from Spain to France, where her family lived in Le Havre; it is here that Francisca learned to speak French. In 1942, as a result of the German invasion, they were returned to Spain where her father, the painter Lorenzo Aguirre, was murdered by the Franco regime. Like many other of her contemporaries, her writing was sidetracked by familial demands, and she began publishing late in life. In 1971 Itaca (Ithaca) earned the Leopoldo Panero poetry award. Her other awards include the Ciudad de Irun in 1976; the Galiana award in 1994; the prestigious Esquio award in 1995; and the Maria Isabel Fernandez-Simal award in 1999. She is married to the poet Felix Grande, a member of the second generation of post-civil war poets. They live together in Spain.

Francisca Aguirre was born in 1930.
