FERNANDO JAÉN

Fernando Jaén (1975, Granada, Spain), doctor by profession. His poetic work hitherto includes El corral de las cuatro esquinas (Dauro 2002), Los ciclos brutos (Comares 2011), Los días del barro (Comares 2014) and Las orillas difíciles (Oblicuas 2015). Enclosed in the poetry collection Todo es poesía en Granada by the anthologist José Martín Vayas (Esdrújulas Ediciones 2015). Member of the project “IV Espiral poética por el mundo” (2015). Part of the collection Nocturnario by Ángel Olgoso and José María Merino (Nazarí 2016).

He has partnered with A.L. Guillén in several joint ventures where his poetry embraces closely the unique music by master Guillén.  Living proof are the albCapricho 69 (1993) and Restos (1998), with lyrics by Fernando Jaén and music by A.L. Guillén.  Amor sin misericordia (2003), an album based on poems from El corral de las cuatro esquinas and Aprojimación a tu ciclo (2013), based upon the poems included in Los ciclos brutos, bear also the firm stamp of this deep and fruitful friendship between both artists. An ascetic and apophatic dialogue, alive to this day.

 As a lyricist, he has also been part of the Spanish band Cosas Que Hacen Bum, in their album Tomando la habitación  (2015).

 His next project will be combining poems from Las orillas difíciles, with a painting exhibition by the Sicilian artist Marcello Magnato, under the title "Pintando las orillas difíciles" (2016). 

 Member of the Institutum Pataphysicum Granatensis, founded by Ángel Olgoso. Member of the Anointed Group, founded by A.L. Guillén.

 For this author, writing is his way of surviving in the frailty.
