Más allá de la concreta circunstancia cultural e histórica en la que surgió, la poesía de Miguel Hernández se ha ido proyectando y agrandando a lo largo del tiempo, porque, traspasados los cerrados círculos literarios, los lectores la han hecho suya y han convertido a Miguel Hernández en un clásico. Se estima no deja de crecer, ya que expresa los anhelos universales humanos más hondos: la naturaleza, la vida, el amor y la generación, la solidaridad, la muerte...y aúna en su palabra clasicismo y contemporaneidad.

About the author (1999)

Little educated, Hernandez studiously imitated the style of Luis de Gongora in his first volume of poetry, published in 1933. In his best volume, The Unending Lightning (1936), he found his own voice, expressing powerful emotion in classical sonnet form. After fighting for the republic during the civil war, Hernandez was imprisoned in a concentration camp, where he died of tuberculosis at age 32 in spite of international protests for his freedom. The Songbook of Absences (1938--41), written during his years as a political prisoner, is a painful record of his suffering on separation from his wife, his sorrow at the death of his son, and his yearning for the simple country life of his youth.
