Carlos Alberto Leumann (1886–1952[1]) was an Argentine poet, teacher, and essayist.[2] He wrote essays on science and metaphysics, and was the director of the literary supplement in La Nacion. His poems have been published in Spanish language anthologies. Leumann was born in Santa Fe, Argentina on the 17 of August, 1886, to strict Protestant parents who disliked that he wrote. At age six he was orphaned, and at age 17 he graduated from the University of Buenos Aires. He then became a professor in literature. In 1927 he published his first widely read work of fiction in La Nacion.[3] In 1936 he married, but had no children. He was a friend of Enrique Banchs. He died on June 17, 1952, in Buenos Aires.
