Poetry , 2017
Forty years after Vicente Aleixandre was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, a new edition of his complete poetry is released under the care of Alejandro Sanz, the number-one expert on his works.
The complete poetry, including unpublished works, of one of the great Spanish poets of the 20th century.
Vicente Aleixandre is undoubtedly one of the great Spanish poets of the 20th century, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1977 and Spain’s National Literature Prize for Narrative in 1933. His verses are characterised by a radical intensity that cuts through the manners and customs of an era, while never losing their strongly personal perspective. Aleixandre is the poet of knowledge, contemplation and love.
Along with Jorge Guillén and Luis Cernuda, Aleixandre’s poetry is the most enduring and demanding of the Generation of ˊ27.
