On March 27, he was close to death. 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.

This was followed by an elegy and then by an ode. The poet’s homosexuality is made defiantly manifest in this collection. However, they did not immediately become friends and Cernuda blames it on his own timidity and distrust.

His dissatisafaction with the conventions of fashionable poetry had been freed by contact with surrealism, which for him was not just a literary phenomenon but the expression of an attitude against conformity. And I don’t expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington! They often met in Aleixandre’s house, sometimes with Lorca and Altolaguirre there as well.

Luis Cernuda – Donde habite el olvido

The autumn, winter olvio spring of was one of the most fertile periods of his life and it seems that this collection was one of his favourites. During the writing of Invocacioneshe met the German philosopher and linguist Hans Gebserwho was living and working in Madrid.

One of the first things that Cernuda did on arriving in Madrid in was to pay a visit to Vicente Aleixandre. Just being alive and living according to the rules is equivalent to being dead.


After his move to Great Britain in SeptemberCernuda continued the exploration of English literature that he had begun the previous spring. He was starting to realise that poetry was the only thing that really mattered to him.

He also felt an uncontrollable need to describe this experience. In his essay ofhe writes: As for his isolation in Seville, Alonso should recall that he had already had poems published in the Revista de Occidente and elsewhere.

In this event, there may be a slight delay in shipping and possible variation in description. It is clear that he knew that his life was coming to a close and he wanted cdrnuda settle his accounts. Wrappers tanned and with a few small spots on cover. Meditations about his isolation in foreign countries and about Spain, particularly about his growing feeling that nothing in Spain was going to change for the better and that intolerance, ignorance and superstition were winning the struggle, [16] are the major themes.

He cast off all the remaining traces of “pure” poetry. There are poems that are derived from song-titles or catch-phrases – “Otra vez, con sentimiento” – and historical poems about figures such as Mozart, Verlaine and Rimbaud, Keats, Goethe, Ludwig of Bavaria.

He also returns to the theme of Habiet, which had first appeared in Las nubesanalysing what he admires and dislikes. His extreme shyness prevented him from mentioning his literary activities until Salinas’ notice was caught by hqbite prose poem published in a student magazine.

Cernuda drifted into xonde teaching simply as a way of earning a living and never held a prestigious post.

In order to read them, he began to learn these languages. He refused the last sacraments and turned away from the crucifix held out by a priest. He then turned to the wall and died.


He visited Paris in the Easter vacation of and was bowled over by the museums and the book-stalls. He could see nothing ahead of him but death. This is interesting as it is a poem habire which Lorca clearly shows his identification with homosexuals [84] but Cernuda’s reference is rather obscure.

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. This difficulty in haite published gave Cernuda the chance to revise and reflect on his work.

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.

It also helped to immunise him against the airs and graces of Madrid or any other place in which he lived. When he left Madrid in Februaryhe took 8 new poems with him.

It is only in such indirect ways that a reader can sense what was happening around him. He noticed that something in Lorca had changed; he was less precious, less melancholy and more sensual.

But since I have only ever achieved a precarious grip on it, there comes the opposite tendency, that of hostility to the ironic attractiveness of reality He was stimulated by the concise and penetrating style of these poems and epigrams.
