Luis Cernuda

He began to take his holidays in Cornwall because he was tired of the big city and urban life. These stimulated his poetic vocation and helped to guide his readings of French literature.

In his essay ofhe writes: Cernuda wrote an elegy for Lorca which he included in Las nubes and to the end of his life took pains to try to ensure that the image of Lorca was not academicised, that he remained a figure of vitality, rebellion and nonconformism. He tends to be more lenient in his judgments of poets who are like him.


He then turned to the wall and died. In haite collection, Cernuda steps away from surrealism, feeling that what was lying around hidden in the depths of his subconscious had been dredged sufficiently. September 21, SevilleKingdom of Spain. He notes that this is a fleeting characteristic in Lorca but more persistent in someone such as Alberti. He seems to have had a sense that he was predestined to read English poetry and that it corrected and completed something that was lacking both in his poetry and in himself.

Alive and striving beyond what was only current circumstances, moments that pass and do not remain, Unamuno was hoping to create himself, or at least create his personal myth, and to be forever what was passing. He spent his days soaking up the sights. They often met in Aleixandre’s house, sometimes with Lorca and Altolaguirre there as well.

His published criticism is valuable for the yabite it gives into his development as a poet – he tends to discuss the authors and works that had most influence on his poetry and fl. When he describes things, it is his individual perception of them that he is trying to convey, what they mean to him, rather than their objective existence. For Cernuda, who was always uneasy about feeling at home anywhere, this was a reason for deciding that he did not want to see Aleixandre again.


Ask the seller a question. He was coming from a country that was impoverished, still showing many signs of war damage and subject to rationing so the shops of New York made it seem as if he were arriving in an earthly paradise.

This book resulted from a love affair that ended badly. This latter side gradually became more and more dominant. A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.

This was a task that taught him a lot and hbite gave him a great deal of satisfaction. A key point in Cernuda’s view of Alberti’s poetry is that Alberti seemed to lack any sense of self. Other poems in the collection allude to Greek mythology or a golden age of innocence that has been lost.

And even in respect of Antonio Machado, so revered by for example Alberti, [] he recalled that he spoke little and listened to even less. Desire led me towards the reality that offered itself to my eyes as if only through possession of it might I be able to achieve certainty about my own life.


In reality, this amounts to ignoring classical Spanish verse forms and rhyme schemes, such as ep – in fact, from this point on Cernuda rarely uses full rhyme or even assonance – even though he often felt a need to write in a lyrical style. In this, there is perhaps a clue as to one of the reasons that he was attracted to the surrealists – the belief in the overwhelming power of love.


Aleixandre seems to have had a special gift for friendship, because he also became one of Lorca’s closest friends according to Ian Gibson. Subsequent editions added new poems as separate books under this collective title. It is noteworthy that this poem contains the first unequivocal expression of homoerotic attraction in his poetry. He strongly identified with their boldness and their sense of alienation from their society [9] and this emerges clearly in his third and fourth collections.

The poem is addressed to his “friend” – solitude – and he develops the idea that he has been chosen to serve mankind in some way by being separated from them, just like a lighthouse-keeper.

He was overawed by being in the presence of such an important figure. Olviso order to read them, he began to learn these languages. The lectures never took place. In Toulouse, he wrote to a friend that he was starting to think that he was too well-dressed.

As in those epigrams in the Greek anthology, he admired the way that concision could give a precise shape to a poem. He recalled this meeting in an article he wrote in When he started work on these poems, he realised that their subject-matter needed greater length for him to be able to express everything he needed to say about them. For example, in “Soliloquio del farero”, the poet finds an escape from desperation in an enclosed and solitary world very similar to that of his earliest poems.

In an essay devoted to Aleixandre in he goes so far as to say that, for a poet to take the course of direct action is absurd and tends to ruin the poet as a poet.
