Madrid, Jan 9 (Prensa Latina) The Cervantes Institute of this capital will hold a tribute to the poet Jaime Gil de Biedma next Monday, as a closing of the commemorative events for the 30th anniversary of his death, the institution reported.
 
The agenda includes the deposit in memoriam of his dossier in the Caja de las Letras (Chamber of Letters) and the premiere of the new show 'Vals del aniversario' (Anniversary Waltz), stared by the singer-songwriter Silvia Comes and dedicated to that writer of Generation of '50, with some of his poems set to music.

The Spanish intellectual published his first book, 'Segun sentencia del tiempo' (According to Time Sentence), in 1953, which was followed by other titles such as: 'Compañeros de viaje,' 1959 (Travel Companions), 'En favor de Venus,' 1965 (In Favor of Venus), and 'Moralidades,' 1966 (Moralities).

In the opinion of experts, in his work he uses colloquialism and irony to approach to social and existential issues, and in his compilation volume of essays entitled 'El pie de la letra' he studies writers such as Baudelaire, Jorge Guillen or Luis Cernuda.
