One of the most famous poets in Spain, Aurora Luque is the author of numerous works, including Camaradas de Ícaro, La siesta de Epicuro, Personal & político and Gavieras. Luque has been honored for her work with significant awards, including the Loewe Prize and the Generación del 27 Prize. Most recently, she won the 2022 Spanish National Poetry Prize for her book Un número finito de veranos (A Finite Number of Summers).
