Writer, translator and scholar of linguistics of the sixties who wrote in the Catalan language. His poetical work is one of the most important among the authors of post-war Catalonia and he continues to exert a great deal of influence over authors nowadays. He published three collections of poems: Da nuces pueris (1960), Menja't una cama ("Eat a leg", 1962) and Teoria dels cossos ("Theory of bodies"), consequently compiled into a single volume called Les dones i els dies ("Women and days", 1968), which was a milestone in Catalan literature. He took his own life on April 1972 in his Sant Cugat flat using a mixture of barbiturates and alcohol.
