Gabriel MiróGabriel Miró Ferrer (; Alicante, 28 July 1879 – Madrid, 24 May 1930), known as Gabriel Miró, was a Spanish modernist writer. In 1900 he finished his studies in Law in the University of Granada and in the University of Valencia. He focused mainly on writing novels, but also collaborated to a large number of newspapers such as: ''El Heraldo, Los Lunes de El Imparcial, ABC'' and ''El Sol''. The rich and poetic language, the philosophical and theological ideas, and the subtle irony are some of the main characteristics of his works. Gabriel Miró preferred to focus on the intimate world of his characters and its development, in the inner relations between everything in their surrounding and the way they evolve in time.
He is the author of more than 20 novels. Most critics believe that Gabriel Miró's literary maturity begins with ''Las cerezas del cementerio'' (''Cemetery cherries'') (1910), whose plot revolves around the tragic love of the super-sensitive young man Félix Valdivia for an older woman (Beatriz) and presents—with an atmosphere of voluptuousness and lyrical intimism—the themes of eroticism, illness, and death.
