Fechas de existencia:

Lorca (Murcia, España)  1885-04-05 - México  1969-01-20


Spanish exiled, native from Lorca (Murcia), writer as a profession, who arrived at Mexico on board of the Nyassa on the 22nd May, 1942.

Coming from a wealthy family, Arderíus abandoned soon his studies of engineer in Belgium and dedicated himself to develop a wide journalist activity, disseminating libertarian thesis that he had known in his trips abroad. Some of these writings were the cause that he was in jail in several occasions during the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera.

During the Civil War he was president of the Socorro Rojo Internacional (International Red Air). In 1939 he went into exile, first to France until Hitler went in Paris, and then to Mexico, so his literary production stopped suddenly, apart from working at the Ministry of National Education.

However, his work, published between 1915 and 1934, is considerably extensive, including 14 novels and two biographies.
