Juan Ramón Jiménez Mantecón was a Spanish poet born in Moguer, Huelva, Southwest Spain. Jiménez studied fine art and law in Seville at the end of the 1890s. At the beginning of the 1900s, he was invited to Madrid by a circle of local poets that included Rubén Darío (1867–1916), often cited as the founder of modernist poetry. Jiménez often spent long periods in mental institutions where he was treated for depression. When hospitalized he frequently received the great poets of his day in his room.
