Juan Andrés Caruso, Argentine Tango lyricist.

Juan Andrés Caruso

Lyricist and play-writer (20 September 1890 - 1 March 1931)

He lived barely forty years and it gave him time to be an outstanding playwriter, journalist, and one of the most prolific tango lyricists.

He was an avant-garde of the picturesque tango; that is to say, the tango that portrays the mocking spirit of the man of Buenos Aires, describing the subtle aspects of his peculiar idiosyncrasy.
