More details

Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of his death, several scenes of the poet's experiences in prison are added to this publication, as well as new images of his tragic end in 1942.

This work aims to be a well-deserved tribute and a necessary exercise of historical memory. He also wants to rescue the poetry, kindness and humanity of a poet who have been portrayed by other authors such as Joan Manuel Serrat, who has written the prologue with special delicacy.

A goatherd in his youth, Miguel Hernández joined the Spanish Communist Party in 1936 and fought in the Civil War (1936–39). Condemned to death by the Nationalists after the war, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment after international protests. He died in prison soon afterward, at the age of 31. Hernández’s predominant themes are love—particularly of a sorrowful nature—war, death, and social injustice. Beginning with a rich, Góngoristic style, his poetry became more intimate simple, and tragic later in life.
