Antonio Machado was born in Seville, Spain, on July 26, 1875. His father, Antonio, was a professor of literature, and his mother, Leonor, was a homemaker. Antonio had two brothers, Manuel and Jorge. His early education was at the Colegio de San Antonio Abad, a Jesuit school in Seville. In 1891, the family moved to Madrid, where Antonio enrolled in the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas. He graduated in 1896 with a degree in philosophy and literature.

Machado’s first published work was a collection of poems called Soledades (1903). He followed this with a second collection, Campos de Castilla (1912). These two works established him as one of the leading Spanish poets of his generation. In 1913, Machado married Leonor Izquierdo, with whom he had two children, Antonio and Leonor. The marriage was unhappy, and the couple divorced in 1924.

During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), Machado sided with the Republicans. When the Republicans lost the war, he went into exile in France. He died in Collioure on February 22, 1939.

Machado’s poetry is characterized by its simplicity and clarity of expression. His work is often concerned with themes of death, love, and nature. His most famous poem is “Campos de Castilla”, which contains the lines “Todo es silencio en derredor / Y en el alma mía un grito / Que nadie oye y que yo mismo / Apago con mi mano.” (“All is silence around me / And in my soul a cry / That no one hears and that I myself / extinguish with my hand.”)

Machado’s work has been translated into many languages and has exerted a significant influence on 20th-century poetry. His collected works were published in five volumes between 1953 and 1955.
