More details

GLORIA FUERTES learned to read and write at the age of three, and as a teenager developed a taste for speaking in rhyming couplets. But it wasn't until her forties that she won recognition as a poet, and not until her sixties that she became the star of a daily television programme in which she told stories to children.

Behind her beaming grandmotherly face and gravelly lorry- driver's voice laid a complex Bohemian character formed in her early childhood. "I was a good girl and slender, tall and somewhat sickly. At nine I was hit by a cart and at 14 I was hit by the war."

Some of her poems remind us children's games, others are funny occurrences, and many others denounce the injustices of the world. For all these reasons, she is considered by many as the poet of children.
