Instead of what he 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 olvdo example of the 19thc.
He discovered that a poet could achieve a deeper poetic effect by not shouting or declaiming, or repeating himself, by avoiding bombast and grandiloquence. 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 Ilvido.

He then states that for him the key factor is not whether a poem is mature or not but whether it has artistic merit. Not even his favourable review of the first edition of La realidad y el deseo seems to have appeased Cernuda for long.
In he did military service in the Regiment of Cavalry. 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. In Julyhe moved to a similar job at the Spanish Institute in London.
Luis Cernuda – Wikipedia
This collection was written during the Spanish Civil War and amidst all the disruption and uncertainty in Fonde life as he went into exile, drifting from Madrid, to London, to Paris, to Cranleigh and finally to Glasgow.
This only seems nabite happen once he finally left Seville inafter his mother’s death. His father died in and he continued to live at home with his mother and sisters. The poet’s homosexuality is made defiantly manifest in this collection. He was starting to realise that poetry was the only thing that really mattered to him. The artistic life of Cambridge and London made it easier for him to develop his musical knowledge. 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 olvodo film, or an image from a talking picture such as White Shadows in the South Seas which he had seen in Paris.
He habie see nothing ahead of him but death. When he donfe Madrid in Februaryhe took 8 new poems with him. One of the first things that Cernuda did on arriving in Madrid in was to pay a visit to Vicente Aleixandre.

He was also convinced that a poet needs to gain as much variety of experience and knowledge as possible, otherwise his work will be pallid and restricted. In Aprilhe moved to Valencia and began to write poems that would be collected in Las Nubes.
This work was begun during his vacation in Oxford, continued in Glasgow and completed at Cambridge in He seems to have had a sense that he was predestined to read English poetry and that it corrected and completed something that was lacking both llvido his poetry and in himself. Alberti invited him to contribute to the celebratory album that he was editing  but Cernuda did not follow it up. However, not even Aleixandre was able to escape ep Cernuda’s sensitivity about his future reputation.
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 The appearance of these two books was a ray of hope for him.
The title alludes to the state of mind in which he found himself at that time – living vicariously in foreign countries where he scarcely knew anybody. As in those epigrams in the Greek anthology, he admired the way that concision could give a precise shape to a poem.
However, after his early collections, he rarely uses the first-person. He wanted to see Rl, however, and asked him to read a poem.
His two sisters died in Cernuda produced two collections of prose poetry. In Februaryan English friend, the poet Stanley Richardson, who died in the Blitz in arranged for him to give habote series of lectures in Oxford and Cambridge. At times, it seems that this was his real family. This collection was started in Mount Holyoke during the winter of and completed in Mexico. After Novemberwhen an edition of Como quien espera el alba was published in Buenos Aires, rumours of its favourable reception reached him in Mount Holyoke.
I trust in a revolution inspired by communism to achieve this. This collection was originally called Invocaciones a las gracias del mundo but Cernuda later shortened it to make it seem less pompous.
Even by then, the situation in Spain meant that donce was not advisable for Cernuda to return and so Richardson suggested that he should join a colony of evacuated Basque children at Eaton Hastings on Faringdon’s estate.
This was a task that taught him a lot and which donfe him a great deal of satisfaction. Unfortunately he was also struck by Aleixandre’s calmness and the sense of ease olvixo he exuded at being in familiar surroundings.
His voracious reading was taking the place of living. The poem presents an allegory of the choosing, beguilement and final destruction of the poet by life or the “daimonic” power.

It is recounted in very simple language but it clearly picks up on the thoughts behind the soliloquy in Invocaciones. He continued to print vilifications right to the end of his habige, which had the effect of turning Cernuda’s former admiration into indifference or even worse. It also really yabite him that Salinas merely sent back a brief acknowledgement of receipt of the book. Just being alive and living according to the rules is equivalent to being dead. Cernuda is keen to save his old friend from appropriation by reactionary forces, defending his unconventional lifestyle homosexuality and dohde else about him that would prevent him from being free to live in Franco’s Spain.
He took up post in November and stayed there for an academic year. He published critical articles all through his career however he also produced 4 major works of criticism:.
