The Beat Generation was born out of WWII, and it still continues to exert considerable influence on today’s literary scene. It also tends to show how his criticism is guided by his own principles. Sign up to receive offers and updates: The world of ancient Greece is often recalled in his poetry.

Luis Cernuda

He was also convinced that a poet needs to gain as much variety of experience and knowledge as possible, otherwise his work will be pallid and restricted. He recalled this meeting in an article he wrote in He points out that he was 25 at this time, so can scarcely be considered “very young” or a “boy”.

He tried to express something of that experience in El poeta y los mitos in Ocnos. While he continued to write poetry, he also published wide-ranging books of critical essayscovering French, English and German as well as Spanish literature. However, after his early collections, he rarely uses the first-person.

As was the practice in those days, many such magazines published collections of poetry as supplements. This collection was started in Mount Holyoke during the winter of and completed in Mexico. Original buff wrappers printed in black. He was not favourably impressed by his theatrical manner and by the way he was surrounded by hangers-on – reminiscent of a matador. One of the first things that Cernuda did on arriving in Madrid in was to pay a visit to Vicente Aleixandre.


His mother died in July and, at the start of September, Cernuda left Seville. It also helped to immunise him against the airs and graces of Madrid or any other place in which he lived.

Perhaps more importantly, there was no attempt made to dissociate the poetry written by Cernuda, from Cernuda the man cernuuda Aleixandre had known him 20 years earlier. His sexual awakening seems to have coincided with the birth of his desire to write poetry, around the age of 14, [31] but it was many years later before he really came to terms with this side of himself. Cernuda’s best critical writing tends to be about writers who interested and inspired him.

The poems that eventually got published were cernuca same as the first drafts, which was very different from his experience with his first two collections.

His friendship with Vicente Aleixandre developed into the closest he had ever had. He had already become noted as something of a dandy during his time at the University of Seville, as noted by Salinas – “a well-cut suit, a perfectly-knotted tie”. He taught in the universities of Glasgow and Cambridge before moving in to the US.

The first eight poems were written in Cambridge and he added another 13 which he wrote during holidays in Cornwall. The effect of this is that much of his poetry seems to be a self-conscious interior monologue. Log-in or create an account first! 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. Ballad of Reading Gaol by C. And so, in my view, the essence of the problem of poetry is the conflict between reality and desire, between appearance and truth, donds us to achieve some glimpse of the complete image of the world that we do not know.


His published criticism is valuable for the insights it gives into his development as a poet – he tends to discuss the authors and works that had most influence lovido his poetry and habitf.


On March 27, he was close to death. Stylistically, there is an increased concentration on clarity and simplicity of diction and his control over his means of expression is growing.

This attitude seems to colour his response to Alberti’s poetic output but it is noticeable that he does try to differentiate between the man and the poet. Make an offer Add to wishlist E-mail a link to this book.

What makes Biblio different? One of the most noteworthy things about hwbite book is that it contains a group of poems – Poemas para un cuerpo – about an intensely physical affair he had with an unidentified man in Mexico.
