About Ramón Gómez de la Serna

Ramón Gómez de la Serna Puig (July 3, 1888 in Madrid – January 13, 1963 in Buenos Aires) was a Spanish writer, dramatist and avant-garde agitator. He strongly influenced surrealist film maker Luis Buñuel. Ramón Gómez de la Serna was especially known for "Greguerías" – a short form of poetry that roughly corresponds to the one-liner in comedy. The Gregueria is especially able to grant a new and often humorous perspective. Serna published over 90 works in all literary genres. In 1933, he was invited to Buenos Aires. He stayed there during the Spanish Civil War and the following Franco regime and died there. Some sample Greguerias: El par de huevos que nos tomamos parece que son gemelos, y no son ni primos terceros. [The couple of eggs we eat look like identical twins, and they're not even third cousins.]El pavo real es un mito jubilado. [The peacock is a retired myth.]Las puertas se enfadan con el viento. [Doors get angry with the wind.]

He is also known as Ramon Gomez de la Serna.
