The appearance of these two books was a ray of hope for him. Because of that it is a pity that this poem is so confused, in spite of its expressive force. He was convinced that he was driven by an inner daimon to write poetry and that the poet is in touch with a spiritual dimension of life that normal people are either blind to or shut off from. It also tends to show how his criticism is guided by his own principles.

It is noteworthy that this poem contains the first unequivocal expression of homoerotic attraction in his poetry. Salinas arranged for him to become the Spanish lector at the University of Toulouse. Cernuda sees in Larra a kindred spirit, embittered, misunderstood, isolated and unsuccessful in love.

He learned English and read widely in English literature. 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. One afternoon, he had an epiphanic experience as if he were seeing things for the first time. Cernuda’s work was known to the poets who grew up in Spain after the Civil War. The major complaint he raises is that this critique is just a lazy repetition of the initial critical reaction in He then states that for him the key factor is not whether a poem is mature or not but whether it has artistic merit.

However, they did not immediately become friends and Cernuda blames it on his own timidity and distrust.

His father died in and he continued to live at home with his mother and sisters. 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.


The influence of the Surrealists is shown by the complexity of the free-flowing imagery, some of it inspired by random discoveries such as the title of a jazz record as a jazz fan, he used to scour record catalogues dohde was intrigued by titles such as “I want to be alone in the South”the csrnuda of an American city such as Durango or Daytona, a title card from a silent film, or an image from a talking picture such as White Shadows in the South Seas which he had seen in Paris.

He goes on to say that, even after the passage of time, he still prefers some of his earlier poems to certain poems written later. Subsequent augmented editions were published in Madrid in and Xalapa in 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.

He began to take his xonde in Cornwall because he was tired of the big city and urban life. In the s, he wrote a few essays on his memories of Cernuda, which of crenuda were fixed in the late s and early s.

His increasing use hanite this device gave his poetry a duality of rhythm – the rhythm of csrnuda individual line and the rhythm of the phrase. The bulk of the poems in the collection are shorter than in previous books and start to incorporate assonance more frequently in an attempt to concentrate the thematic material rather than explore it olvjdo length and also to seem more purely lyrical.

The poem presents an allegory of the choosing, beguilement and final destruction of the poet by life or the “daimonic” power. This collection was written during the Spanish Civil War and amidst all the disruption and uncertainty in Cernuda’s life as he went into exile, drifting from Madrid, to London, to Paris, to Cranleigh and finally to Glasgow.

He regretted leaving Cambridge, despite the range and variety of theatres, concerts and bookshops in the capital. This only seems to happen once he finally left Seville inafter his mother’s death. In very good condition.



Our Day return guarantee still applies. He could see nothing ahead of him but death. Cernuda’s last book of poems is a summing up of his career.

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. Cernuda’s best critical writing tends to be about writers who interested and inspired him. The poet’s homosexuality is made defiantly manifest in this collection.

But he stayed on in Paris on receiving news of what was happening in his native land.

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. It also occurred to him in the meantime that he could bring all his poetry together under the title La realidad y el deseo. It also really stung him that Salinas merely sent back a brief acknowledgement of habitr of the book. 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.

Another crucial phase of his development was his residence in Great Britain between and It is clear that habife knew that his life was coming to a close and he wanted to settle his accounts. From October to Aprilhe participated in radio broadcasts with A. During the writing of Invocacioneshe met the German philosopher and linguist Hans Gebserwho was living and working in Madrid.
