Acudí a Aleixandre motivado por la curiosidad. A diferencia de mi experiencia con Cernuda o Lorca, cuyas obras venían acompañadas de una introducción que facilitaba la inmersión en su propia cosmovisión, acabo dos de sus trabajos con la sensación de que no he podido disfrutarlos tanto como habría sido posible de haber dedicado más tiempo a investigar sobre su lenguaje poético y el contexto que lo abarca.

Aún así, lo poco que he podido abstraer -por falta de conocimiento, como ya he dicho- es pos

Si bien el surrealismo nunca ha sido de mi gusto, Aleixandre consigue transmitir sensaciones a través de poemas que, como se dice en el estudio preliminar, no tienen significado alguno. Es interesante el uso de las figuras literarias que maneja también, así como algunos versos con una profundidad especial.

Una escritura poética creativa y una hermosa descripción del cosmos que rodea a los enamorados.

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.
