Carlos Oroza was born on May 13, 1923, and died on November 20, 2015.
He was a Spanish poet who was born in Viveiro.
Carlos is known mainly for the interpretation and performance of his own work.
Such work is rare and composed of free verses with a great preponderance of strength and rhythm.
Carlos is upon all a great reciter.
His poetry is, as music, mainly to be heard because Oroza is a lover of orality, ‘the loudness of the words’ as he says.
Carlos considers books a ‘cemetery of signs’.
He is also considered a wicked poet and an alchemyst.
In the 1960s when he was living in Madrid, Carlos became famous in the literary-poetic environment of the Café Gijón (es:Café Gijón), oasis of national coexistence, culture and contra cultural movements during Franco’s dictatorship.
Carlos passed away at age 92 in November 2015.
