Spanish writer and poet that was exiled, and whose parents were wealthy farmers from Valencia. He made his basic studies with the "Maristas" in Valencia, and studied Laws and Arts in the University of Valencia. He married the teacher Ana Matilde Martínez Iborra. He worked as literature teacher in the Bartolomé Cossío School of Valencia between 1933 and 1936, and was one of the founders of the UEAP ("Unión de Escritores y Artistas Proletarios") and the "Alianza de Intelectuales" to defend the culture in Valencia.

Between 1936 and 1938, he was designated Secretary of the Directorate General of Arts, led by Josep Renau, and participated in the rescue and protection of the art treasure of the Prado Museum and the Liria Palace. In 1938, he joined the XIV Group of Guerrilla Fighters of the Spanish Republican Army.

At the end of the war, he moved to France and entered Saint-Cyprien and Barcarés concentration camps, and later was in a refuge for intellectuals in Narbonne. He went with his wife to Santo Domingo in 1940. He worked there in the radio "Hora del Mundo" and founded the "Ozama" magazine.
