This anthology interprets a wide number of poems, in addition to prose poems, biographical sketches on Spanish and Latin American personalities (Ruben Dario, Enrique Granados, etc), essays ("Aristocracy and Democracy", "Poetry and Literature"), and a brief choice of aphorisms. All in all, the main thorough English-language creation you're more likely to locate of this Nobel laureate.

Juan Ramón Jiménez - Biographical
Juan Ramón Jiménez (1881-1958) belonged to the crowd of writers who, within the wake of Spain's lack of her colonies to the USA (1898), staged a literary revival. The chief of this team of modernistas, as they referred to as themselves, Rubén Darío, helped Juan Ramón to post Almas de violeta (Souls of Violet), 1900, his first quantity of poetry. The years among 1905 to 1912 Ramón Jiménez spent at his birthplace, Moguer, the place he wrote Elejías puras (Pure Elegies), 1908, l. a. soledad sonora (Sonorous Solitude), 1911, and Poemas mágicos y dolientes (Magic Poems of Sorrow), 1911. His early poetry was once inspired by way of German Romanticism and French Symbolism. it truly is strongly visible and ruled via the colors yellow and eco-friendly. His later sort, decisive, officially ascetic, and ruled via white, emerges within the poetic prose of his smooth Platero y yo (Platero and I), 1914, and is totally built in Diario de un poeta recién casado (Diary of a Newly-Wed Poet), 1917, written in the course of a visit to the USA, in addition to in Eternidades (Eternities), 1918, Piedra y cielo (Stone and Sky), 1919, Poesía (Poetry), 1923, and Belleza (Beauty), 1923. within the twenties, Ramón Jiménez grew to become the stated grasp of the hot iteration of poets. He used to be lively as a critic in addition to an editor of literary journals. In 1930 he retired to Seville to commit himself to the revision of his previous paintings. Six years later, because the results of the Spanish Civil struggle, he left Spain for Puerto Rico and Cuba. He remained in Cuba for 3 years and, in 1939, went to the USA, which grew to become his place of abode until eventually 1951, while he moved certainly to Puerto Rico. in the course of those years Juan Ramón taught at quite a few universities and released Españoles de tres mundos (Spaniards of 3 Worlds), 1942, a ebook of prose graphics, and a number of other collections of poems, between them Voces de mi copla (Voices of My Song), 1945, and Animal de fondo (Animal of Depth). The latter e-book, might be his most sensible, sincerely unearths the spiritual preoccupations that crammed the final years of the poet's existence. decisions from such a lot of his works have been released in English translation in chosen Writings of Juan Ramón Jiménez and 3 Hundred Poems, 1903-1953. Ramón Jiménez died in Puerto Rico in 1958.

«I settle for with gratitude the undeserved honour which this illustrious Swedish Academy has noticeable healthy to bestow upon me. Besieged by means of sorrow and disease, i have to stay in Puerto Rico, not able to take part at once within the solemnities. And so you could have the dwelling testimony of my very own intimate emotions accrued in daily organization of friendship firmly tested during this land of Puerto Rico, i've got requested Rector Jaime Benitez of its collage, the place i'm a member of the school, to be my own consultant earlier than you in all ceremonies hooked up with the Nobel Prize awards of 1956.»

I have came upon such affection for Juan Ramón Jiménez and such figuring out for his works that I belief you are going to excuse me if I unmarried out for exact thank you one amongst you so clever and penetrating that i'm yes all others might be completely satisfied to be well-known in him. I confer with your individual nice poet Hjalmar Gullberg, whose presentation this afternoon we will never forget and whose rendition of Juan Ramón Jiménez' poetry has dropped at the Scandinavian humans the transparent purity of our Andalusian master.

Juan Ramón Jiménez has requested me additionally to assert this: «My spouse Zenobia is the genuine winner of this Prize. Her companionship, her aid, her proposal made, for 40 years, my paintings attainable. this day, with out her, i'm desolate and helpless.»

I have heard from the trembling lips of Juan Ramón Jiménez essentially the most touching expressions of depression. For Juan Ramón is this kind of poet that his each be aware displays his personal inner state. We fervently wish that sometime his sorrow could be expressed in writing and that the reminiscence of Zenobia will offer renewed and eternal thought to that groovy grasp of Hispanic letters, Juan Ramón Jiménez, whom you will have honoured so signally today.

Prior to the speech, R. Granit, Member of the Royal Academy of Sciences, made the next comments concerning the Spanish poet: «Juan Ramón has been referred to as a poet for poets, however the layman can process him if keen first to partake passively of the sheer visible fantastic thing about his panorama, attractive Andalusia, its birds, its vegetation, pomegranates, and oranges. as soon as within his global, through leisurely interpreting and rereading, one progressively awakens to a brand new «living insight» into it, refreshed by way of the intensity and richness of a unprecedented poetical mind's eye. whereas doing so I recalled a talk among the painter Degas and the poet Mallarmé, as similar by way of Paul Valéry. Degas, being affected by a sonnet, complained of the problems, and at last exclaimed: ‹And but i don't lack ideas...› Mallarmé with nice mildness answered: ‹But Degas, one doesn't create poetry with principles. One does it with words.› If ever there was encouraged use of phrases, it truly is in Juan Ramón Jiménez' poetry, and during this experience he's a poet for poets. this can be most likely additionally explanation why, in the complete Spanish-speaking international, he's considered as the instructor and master.

The literary awards may perhaps contain judgements tougher than the clinical ones. but we must always be thankful to the founder for having integrated a literary Prize in his will. It provides dignity to the opposite awards and to the act itself; it emphasizes the human and cultural point which the 2 worlds of artistic mind's eye have in universal; and maybe, in spite of everything, it expresses deeper insights than scientists can ever achieve.»
