Spanish writer and translator. Muse and wife of the poet Juan Ramón Jiménez. Daughter of the civil engineer Raimundo Camprubí Escudero, member of a military family, and Isabel Aymar Lucca, descendant of a family from the United States and Puerto Rico. She met her husband in 1913 in the Students Residence in a conference that Bartolomé Cossío was giving out. They married in New York in 1916. She was a defendant of women's rights and as a feminist she stood out for her work on the Women's Lyceum Club, of which she was secretary, being María de Maeztu its president. She translated the works of the Nobel Prize winner Rabindranath Tagore. When the Spanish Civil War broke out, the couple went into exile to the United States where members of her family lived. After that, they moved to Cuba and then to Puerto Rico. She worked as a teacher at the University of Puerto Rico in Río Piedras. She died days after her husband was given the Nobel Prize of Literature. In 1958, the remains of the couple were brought to Spain by her nephew and heir Francisco Hernández-Pinzón, and are now in Moguer (Huelva).
