Rhymes (Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer)

Continuing, advancing along the path of the History of literature, we arrive at the XNUMXth century. And it is that we cannot forget another great poet who dedicated part of his literary project to love. His verses belong to Spanish romanticism and there are many who stand out for their assonance rhyme and free versification. On the other hand, it should be remembered that the Rimas de Bécquer are usually accompanied by their Legends, an opportunity to discover the most relevant work of the Sevillian author.

Twenty love poems and a desperate song (Pablo Neruda)

This is one of the volumes that best represents modern love poetry: an essential classic by Chilean author Pablo Neruda (Nobel Prize for Literature 1971). Twenty love poems and a desperate song (1924) is one of his first works, in which he denotes his efforts to abandon the prevailing modernism. It is made up of what is expressed in the title, and none of the twenty poems have a title, nor are they dedicated to any person in particular. Perhaps these love-themed compositions have been a pretext for the young Neruda, which would have allowed him to work on his incipient poetics.
