About the Book



Becquer s Rhymes have become the most well-known of the 19th-century poetry collections. A prime exponent of a lyric poetry that is uncomfortable in the confines of romanticism and almost modernist, these short poems owe their lightness to a zealous effort at stylistic refinement. At the same time, the Legends are fantastic narrations with an intimate, somber tone, based for the most part on popular tales, and form one of the most representative works of Post-Romanticism in Spain.



Book Synopsis



Los mejores libros jamás escritos.
«Podrá no haber poetas; pero siempre habrá poesía.»

Las Rimas de Bécquer son hoy la más conocida de las colecciones poéticas del siglo XIX. Exponente de una lírica incómoda en el corsé romántico y casi modernista, estos poemas breves deben su liviandad a un esforzado trabajo de depuración estilística. A su vez, las Leyendas son narraciones fantásticas de tono intimista y lúgubre, basadas en su mayoría en relatos populares, y suponen una de las producciones más representativas del posromanticismo de nuestro país.

El catedrático emérito en literatura española de la Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia Enrique Rull firma la introducción, las actividades finales y las notas que acompañan al lector a lo largo del volumen. Desde la semblanza de Bécquer hasta el análisis de su poética y el estudio de las fuentes de las que bebe su narrativa, la presente edición, que incluye asimismo las Cartas literarias a una mujer, resulta imprescindible para el estudio pormenorizado de esta obra cumbre de las letras hispánicas.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The best books ever written.
"There may be no poets, but there will always be poetry."

Bécquer's Rhymes have become the most well-known of the 19th-century poetry collections. A prime exponent of a lyric poetry that is uncomfortable in the confines of romanticism and almost modernist, these short poems owe their lightness to a zealous effort at stylistic refinement. At the same time, the Legends are fantastic narrations with an intimate, somber tone, based for the most part on popular tales, and form one of the most representative works of Post-Romanticism in Spain.

Enrique Rull, professor emeritus in Spanish Literature at the National University of Distance Learning, has signed the introduction, the final activities, and the notes that accompany the reader throughout the volume. From the biographical sketch of Bécquer to the analysis of his poetics and the study of the sources from which his narrative



About the Author



Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, cuyo verdadero nombre era Gustavo Adolfo Domínguez Bastida, se trasladó de Sevilla, donde nació en 1836, a Madrid para dedicarse a la literatura. Padeció tuberculosis y vivió en la penuria económica hasta que le nombraron censor de novelas y director literario de La ilustración de Madrid. Entre sus obras en prosa destacan textos como Cartas desde mi celda y Cartas literarias a una mujer, escritas en el monasterio de Veruela. Sin embargo, la cúspide de su producción se da con sus Rimas y sus Leyendas, de las que se desprende el lúgubre y sublime espíritu posromántico. Murió en Madrid, en 1870, dejando tras de sí una estela literaria cuya influencia no tiene parangón en la historia de la literatura en lengua castellana.
