Recommends it for: anyone studying for their QEs in Spanish Lit; anyone interested in surrealism
Ashamed to admit it, but Vicente Aleixandre doesn't really do anything for me personally. Objectively, he is the master of the surrealist image, and rivals Lorca in terms of the depths of his poetic explorations. Aleixandre's work, though, (for me), isn't as fun to explore, adhering as he does almost exclusively to the surrealist creed.

Still, this one might deserve a re-read, as I read it when I was studying for my QEs and was pretty jaded by that point.

Spanish poet, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1977. Vicente Aleixandre has been called an existentialist, a mystic pantheist, and a neoromantic. Although Aleixandre did not consider himself an orthodox surrealist, his poems contained surrealistic images and Freudian subconscious associations. Central motifs are erotic love, solitude, time, and death.
