Gabriel Miró Ferrer

Miró Ferrer, Gabriel (gäbrēĕlˈ mērōˈ fĕrĕrˈ) [key], 1879–1930, Spanish novelist and short-story writer. One of the Generation of '98, he achieved his powerful individual style through unusual combinations of words and cadences. His novels are sensuous in tone, haunting, and evocative. Their themes are the beauty and cruelty of nature and of man. Among them are Figuras de la pasión del Señor (1916, tr. Figures of the Passion of Our Lord, 1924), his masterpiece Libro de Sigüenza (1917), and Nuestro Padre San Daniel (1921, tr. Our Father, San Daniel, 1933).
