[Autom. eng. transl.] Margarita Gil Roësset (1908-1932) was an avant-garde Spanish sculptor, illustrator and poet who took her life at the age of 24, defeated by a love and unrequited passion that colonized her entire life until it became a tragedy. Before she died, the young woman handed out some papers to the man she had fallen in love with, Juan Ramón Jiménez, in which she confessed her feelings. After some long adventures, the diary of the last days of life of Marga Gil Roësset was published in 2015 with a prologue by Carmen Hernández-Pinzón, representative of the heirs of the poet from Malaga, and a text by Marga Clark, niece of the artist , poet and photographer. Marga Clark herself, in addition, owes the publication, in 2002, of a novel titled Bitter Light that reconstructs, from a perspective remote in time, the vital experience of the unfortunate artist from Madrid. The purpose of this paper is to re-analyze the figure of Marga Gil Roësset in the light of her own words and the perspectives offered by the people who knew her in order to rescue from oblivion the memory of one of the artistic personalities most innovative and nonconformist of the Spanish cultural landscape of the first decades of the 20th century.
