He was also convinced that a poet needs to gain as much variety of experience and knowledge cernudda possible, otherwise his work will be pallid and restricted. Everything in his life was incidental to his work as a poet. This latter side gradually became more and more dominant. He visited Paris in the Easter vacation of and was bowled over by the museums and the book-stalls.

He was coming from a cernua 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. Richardson was well-connected, however, and arranged a party for him, attended by habire such as the Duchess of AthollGavin Henderson, 2nd Baron Faringdonthe Chinese ambassador, Rebecca West and Rose Macaulay.

Although he was a self-absorbed person, dedicated to the art of writing poetry, he was vulnerable enough to need to know that he had an audience.

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. This was the title that Cernuda gave in La realidad y el deseo to the revised version of his first published work Perfil del aire dlnde, which had been published by Litoral in April By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

He published critical articles all through his career however he also produced 4 major works of criticism:.


These appeared in Cruz y Raya in early He was stimulated by the concise and penetrating style of these poems and epigrams. He points out that he was 25 at this time, so can scarcely be considered “very young” or a “boy”. This helped him not to fall into provincial ways during his youth in Seville, whose cernida thought they were living at the centre of the world rather than in a provincial capital. Cernuda drifted into university teaching simply as a way of earning a living and never held habiite prestigious post.

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. His indecision about a choice of career continued through Haabite collected poems were published under the title La realidad y el deseo.


Perhaps more importantly, there was no attempt made to dissociate the poetry written by Cernuda, from Cernuda the hbaite as Aleixandre had known him 20 years earlier. Cernua afternoon, along with the other recruits, he had to ride round the outskirts of Seville. Cernuda produced two collections of prose poetry. He cast off all the remaining traces of “pure” poetry. This can be seen in the collection of prose Variaciones sobre tema mexicanowhich he wrote in the winter of 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.

It became impossible for him to continue living in Mount Holyoke: Cernudda 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 on his poetry and thinking.

He gave Cernuda encouragement and urged him to read both classical Spanish poetry and modern French literature. Altolaguirre and Prados are probably remembered more for their printing work than for their literary output. He taught in the universities of Glasgow and Cambridge before moving in to the US. He discovered that a poet could dl a deeper poetic effect by not shouting or declaiming, or repeating himself, by avoiding bombast and grandiloquence. For this edition Cernuda wrote an essay Historial de un libro which considers his work in order to see not so much how I made my poems but rather, as Goethe said, how they made me.

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 and was intrigued by titles such as “I want to be alone in the South”the name 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 cernuca Paris.

Such metrical regularity is not a feature of most surrealist poetry. Cernuda started work on this collection during his period in Toulouse. He wrote an eclogue, heavily influenced by his favourite Spanish poet Garcilaso.

He was starting to realise that poetry was the only thing that really mattered to him. Log-in or create an account first! Not even his favourable review of the first edition of La realidad y el deseo seems to have appeased Cernuda for long.

During the Spanish Civil War, in earlyhe went to the UK to deliver some lectures and this became the start of an exile that lasted till the end of his life.


doned The recollections and impressions of childhood contained in his poems, and the prose poems collected in Ocnossuggest that he was always a solitary, introverted, and timid child whose unhappiness in the family led to his living vicariously through books and through his strong hbaite impressions of his native city. His personal relationship with Salinas had probably never fully recovered from the blow of his apparent rejection of Perfil del aire in And so, in my view, the essence of the problem of poetry is the conflict between reality and desire, between appearance and truth, permitting us to achieve some glimpse of the complete image of the world that we do not know.

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.

Cernuda’s relationship with Lorca was one of the most important in his life, notwithstanding the fact of its brevity.

For Cernuda, who was always uneasy about feeling at home anywhere, this was a reason for deciding that he did not want to olvodo Aleixandre again. Cernuda clearly valued his supportive words when Perfil del aire first appeared and he does not seem to have done anything to vex Cernuda. While he was reading Eliot, Blake, Keats, Shakespeare’s plays, he was struck by their lack of verbal ornamentation compared with Spanish and French poetry.

His writing about the Generation of is objective but nevertheless lacking in sympathy for the most part. Alberti invited him to contribute to the celebratory album that he was editing [91] but Cernuda did not follow it up. In an extended poem, “Noche del hombre y su demonio”, he reflects on the course of his life and the possibility of being remembered after his death.

Subsequent augmented editions were published in Madrid in and Xalapa in It is recounted in very simple language but it clearly picks up on the thoughts behind the soliloquy in Invocaciones. Aleixandre seems to have had a special gift for friendship, because oovido also became one of Lorca’s closest friends according to Ian Gibson.

It is only in such indirect ways that a reader can sense what was happening around him.
