At times, it seems that this was his real family. In he began to study Law at the University of Sevillewhere, during his first year, he attended classes In Spanish Language and Literature given by Pedro Salinas. He came to the attention olfido Pedro Salinas in his first year at Seville University – – and recorded, as late asthat he would probably never have found his vocation as a poet had it not been for the older man’s encouragement.

In “Peregrino”, he reacts to enquiries about whether he might return to his homeland in a characteristically olvidoo way which shades into a tone of resolute stoicism as donce explains that he is driven to keep moving forward and can never return to the past. The poet wants to find a place to hide from the world of reality, fully aware that such a retreat or escape can only be temporary. In Toulouse, he wrote to a friend that he was starting to think that he was too well-dressed.

For Cernuda, who was always uneasy about feeling at home anywhere, this was a reason for deciding that he did not want habkte see Aleixandre again. When he left Madrid in Xondehe took 8 new poems with him. A significant stage of his development occurred inwhen he was doing military service.

He learned to avoid two literary vices, the pathetic fallacy and “purple patches”, avoiding undue subjectivity or features that did not fit in with the overall conception of the poem. He was starting to realise that poetry was the only thing that really mattered to him. The poems gathered in this and the previous collection came to Cernuda fully formed.

However, it is noteworthy that in his later essay, Historial de un librohe used the same expression to depict his sense of confusion at the hostile reviews to his first collection. In reality, this amounts to ignoring classical Spanish verse forms and rhyme schemes, such as letrillas – 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.


Very rare copy in very good condition of important work by Spanish Poet Luis Cernudaa member of the Generation of ’27 group of noted avant garde poets. Between and he was a lecturer at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. His collected poems were published under the title La realidad y el deseo.

Our Day return guarantee still applies. September 21, Seville ccernuda, Kingdom of Spain. Wrappers tanned and with a few small spots on cover. He took up post in November and stayed there for an academic year.

His voracious reading was taking the place of living. Altolaguirre and Prados are probably remembered more for their printing work than for their literary output.

Neither Glasgow nor Scotland appealed to him, which is perhaps noticeable in the downbeat tone of the poems he wrote there. Reading some lines of poetry, hearing some notes of music, seeing an attractive person could be the external influence that led to a poem but what was important was to try to express the real, deep-lying poetic impulse, which was sometimes powerful enough to make him shiver or burst into tears.

He recalled this meeting in an article he wrote in Cernuda produced two collections of prose poetry. The problem is that Alberti stepped over Cernuda’s line where poetry becomes activism.

When the Spanish Civil War broke out, a friend of his, Concha de Albornozarranged for him to join her in Paris as secretary to her father, the ambassador Alvaro de Albornoz.

Luis Cernuda

Alberti enjoyed fame for his political activism and Lorca was possibly as gifted in drama and music as he was in poetry. His increasing use of this device gave his poetry a duality of rhythm – the rhythm of the individual line and the rhythm of the phrase. Because of that it is a pity that this poem is so confused, in spite of its expressive force.

Perhaps more importantly, there was no attempt made to dissociate the poetry written by Cernuda, from Cernuda the man as Aleixandre had known him 20 years earlier. He remained there from July to Septemberbut after that he returned to Madrid along with the ambassador and his family. In the s, he wrote a few essays on his memories of Cernuda, which of course were fixed in the late s and early s.


Considering the friendship between them and his admiration for Lorca, Cernuda is dispassionate in his assessments of Lorca’s poetry.

It is clear that he was always in favour of Alberti’s efforts on behalf of exploited Spaniards. On his return from vacation inhe resigned from his post, [5] giving up a worthy position, a decent salary, and life in a friendly and welcoming country that offered him a comfortable and convenient lifestyle.

Cernuda clearly valued his supportive words when Perfil del aire first appeared and he does not seem to have done anything to vex Cernuda. The appearance of these two books was a ray of hope for him. Cernuda’s best critical writing tends to be about writers who interested and inspired him.

In Augusthe moved to Emmanuel College, Cambridgewhere he was much happier. Shortly afterwards, the boy fell ill and was taken to the Radcliffe Infirmary. Variaciones sobre tema mexicano was published in Gradually, over the course of many meetings, Cernuda’s habitual reserve and distrust faded. Mexico CityMexico. In this poem, honour, patriotism and duty are seen as worthless in comparison to the suffering they inflict on the rebel or non-conformist. The first eight poems were written in Cambridge and he added another 13 which he wrote during holidays in Cornwall.

This book resulted from a love affair that ended badly. I trust in a revolution inspired by communism to achieve this. Cernuda’s poetry shows a continual process of stripping away artifice and modish elements. After a few months in England, penniless and barely able to speak English, he went to Paris with the intention of returning to Spain. He also felt an uncontrollable need to describe this experience.

The poems that eventually got published were the same as the first drafts, which was very different from his experience with his first two collections. For Cernuda, a true poet has to break away from society in some way, even if he might live a lifestyle that looks totally conventional from the outside, and these two poets never managed to do that.
