There are hints of the poet’s admiration for Greek mythology and also of his interest in male physical beauty. After his return to Madrid from Toulouse in Junehe met Aleixandre again: He taught in the universities of Glasgow and Cambridge before moving in to the US.

He continued to print vilifications right to the end of his life, which had the effect of turning Cernuda’s former admiration into indifference dondw even worse. Instead of what cernua had come to see as the artifice and triviality of hermetic images deriving from the flow of thoughts through the poet’s mind, he turned to the example of the 19thc. And even in respect of Antonio Machado, so revered by for example Alberti, [] he recalled that he spoke little and listened to even less.

As was the practice in those days, many such magazines published collections of poetry as supplements. For this edition Cernuda wrote an essay Historial de un libro which considers his work in order cerhuda see not so much how I made my poems but rather, as Goethe said, how they made me. In this collection, Cernuda steps away from surrealism, feeling that what was lying around hidden in the depths of his subconscious had been dredged olvdo.

Cernuda produced two collections of prose poetry. His indecision about a choice of career continued through These stimulated his poetic vocation and helped to guide his readings of French literature. His extreme shyness prevented him from mentioning his literary hbaite until Salinas’ notice was caught by a prose poem published in a student magazine.

He was gratified to learn that he was starting to find an audience and that his name was getting mentioned when Spanish poetry was discussed. He is not a whole-hearted admirer of the Romancero gitanofor example, unimpressed by the obscurity of the narratives in many of the individual poems and by the theatricality and outmoded costumbrismo of the collection as a whole. British poet – and yet also one of hzbite 3 or 4 finest poets of his generation. He was overawed cernudz being in the presence of such an important figure.


He cast off all the remaining traces of “pure” poetry. He learned a lot from the literature and greatly admired certain aspects of the national character, habige displayed in wartime, but found it hard to summon up affection for the country and its people.

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.

Luis Cernuda – Donde habite el olvido

Cernuda started work on this collection during his period in Toulouse. As for his isolation in Seville, Alonso should recall that he had already had poems published in the Revista de Occidente and elsewhere.

This book resulted from a love affair that ended badly. The implication is that he was trusted with the intimate confessions of many of his friends. 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. Everything in his life was incidental to his work as a poet.

A significant stage of his development occurred inwhen he was doing military service. No attempt was made to see whether that old image still fitted the man who had gone through all the upheaval that Cernuda had experienced while going into exile.

Luis Cernuda

Luis Cernuda was one of the most dedicated poets amongst the members of the Generation of It also really stung him that Salinas merely sent back a brief acknowledgement of receipt of the book. Because of that it is a pity that this poem is so confused, in spite of its expressive force.

After his move to Great Britain in SeptemberCernuda continued the exploration of English literature that he had begun the previous spring. The title of the collection alludes to the atmosphere of Britain during the Second World War when “it was only possible to hope for an end to the world’s retreat into a primitive world of darkness and terror, in the middle of which England was like the ark in which Noah survived the flood. In “Malentendu”, he shows his unease that his own reputation could be shaped beyond the grave by the perceptions of someone such as Pedro Salinas and his reference to El Licenciado Vidriera.


These fragments of pre-Socratic thought seemed to him the most profound and poetic philosophical works he had ever read. Some sunning to cover and edgewear on corners. He regretted leaving Cambridge, despite the range and variety of theatres, concerts and bookshops in the capital.

One of the most noteworthy things about this 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. His father died in and he continued to live at home with his mother and sisters. He refused the last sacraments and turned away from the crucifix held out by a priest.

He was frank about his homosexuality at a time when this was dnode and hagite something of a role model for this in Spain.

The major complaint he raises is that this critique is just a lazy repetition of the initial critical reaction in The Beat Generation was born out of WWII, and it still continues to exert considerable influence on today’s literary scene.

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”. Alberti enjoyed fame for his political activism and Lorca was possibly as gifted in drama and music as he was in poetry. Ask the seller a question.

Alberti describes him as dark, thin, extremely refined and meticulous.

He could see nothing ahead of him but death. This difficulty in getting published gave Cernuda the chance to revise and reflect on his work. The first eight poems were written in Cambridge and he added another 13 which he wrote during holidays in Cornwall.
