Francisco de Quevedo y Villegas was a Spanish noble, politician, and writer of the Golden Age, born on September 14, 1580, in Madrid. Coming from a noble family, Quevedo received a solid education and, from a young age, demonstrated great intellectual prowess.
Quevedo studied at the University of Alcalá and later at the University of Valladolid, where he graduated in theology. However, his true passion was literature. He is known for his sharp social and political criticism, as well as his skill in satire and cutting wit in his works.
The writer led a tumultuous life marked by conflicts with other literary figures of the time, especially with his notorious enmity with the illustrious author Luis de Góngora. This literary rivalry, known as the "literary dispute" or the "culteran controversy," was a prominent feature of Quevedo's life.
Throughout his career, Quevedo produced an extensive body of work that ranged from lyric poetry to moral and philosophical prose. Among his most well-known works are "La vida del Buscón llamado Don Pablos" and his numerous sonnets, where he expressed his sharp wit and critical vision of society in his time.
Quevedo passed away on September 8, 1645, in Villanueva de los Infantes, leaving a literary legacy that endures to this day. His work, characterized by its sharpness, sarcasm, and depth, continues to be a subject of study and admiration in the realm of Spanish literature.
