Hermetic groups, which always conspiring in that beautiful time of revolutions passed, confused words were heard: the English gold, the day of the cry, the masons Fernando Fortun. THE voice of life brief Fernando Fortun, poet of precarious health and ephemeral life, died before reaching the twenty-four years of age, shares his poetic compositions with the poets twilight from the beginning of the 20th, Tomas Morales, Enrique Diez-Canedo, Angel Vegue and Goldoni, Alonso Quesada and Pedro Salinas. In the foreword to the romantic time, his only work published in life, written by his friend the Almeria poet Francisco Villaespesa, describes us accurately the poetry of the poet from Madrid: prefer drawing to color, flees tones citrus fruit, rough notes, instead, looking for big breaks, the great silences, because in them you feel better the internal rhythm of your soul and Juan Ramon Jimenez left us portrait of the poet, It seemed a Chopin, adolescent and elegant, fresh and withers at a time, a young Cypress slightly crushed by I do not know that you wind. The poetry of Fortun is filled with frequent evocations of childhood, and, especially, in the past, impregnated with one of a sweet melancholy, as in these verses: by you, romantic, yet my heart burns; / This world so old, I have come too late, / I should be your lover and I have been your child. Or these others: in an old box that forgotten / cornered my Mistress in a loft / our old abandoned house / vague memories of my childhood are., becquerian tones and a remarkable technical virtuosity. Fernando Fortun was born in Madrid on May 30, 1890 and died in Las Rozas, Madrid, may 6, 1914, due to pulmonary tuberculosis.

He lives for some time in Paris in 1910, the following year, in Geneva. He travels to Jerez, Sevilla and Malaga in 1913. That year he edited with Enrique Diez-Canedo, an anthology titled modern French poetry, with magnificent translations of symbolists and parnassians French, which had a great influence among the young poets of the time.
In 1907, when the poet was only seventeen years old, appeared his first and only book published in life, romantic time. Relics (1914), in which were collected prose texts, letters and poems left unpublished is published after his death. And as the poet’s brief life said: peace is profound; / do not reach the rumors from the outside. / Dusty books / are yawn / and open in front of me, a tome, / that without seeing it my eyes contemplate it.
