First stage poetic solitudes in the years when modernism triumphs appears Solitudes (1903) and then Solitudes, Galleries and Other Poems (1907). Years later, Machado will speak of the teaching of Reuben, but he had intended to announce further very different way. He adds, I imagined that the poetic element was not the word for its phonetic value, or color, or line, or a complex of sensations, but a deep throb of the spirit which puts the soul, if anything gets , or what it says, if anything he says, with its own voice in response to contact mundoSin animated though, admits: I did not book this through systematic propósito.Y later would refer to himself talking about that modernist of year three. Indeed, there is much that these beginnings of Modernism in Machado. Modernism is an intimate, romantic vein with that reminds Becquer. Machado, in his words, "writes <mirando to dentro>, trying to capture, in a <inner monologue>, <the universals of sense>. These universal feelings: time, death, God. That is, the problem of human destiny of the human condition. But there are also nostalgic memories of childhood, evocations of landscape finest ... and dreamed of a love lived. Loneliness, sadness or anxiety are the results of that look to the bottom of Machado alma.En vision and art of Solitudes, the symbolic values. Thematic motives so characteristic of Machado as the afternoon the water, the water wheel, the <<galleries>>, etc., are symbols of deep realities of intimate obsessions (water, for example, is a symbol of life when it springs, symbol transience when it runs, a symbol of death when quiet or when the sea). We will have multiple opportunities to check in our study. Symbolism and Modernism Machado also comes a preference for certain types of rhythm. Thus, in his verse, revealing there is a presence dodecasyllables and Alexandrian verses, along with some examples of metrics based on accentual feet. However, we are already seeing a taste for simpler shapes, such as silva.Y nevertheless, Machado has already <voz propia> that he had sought. The Solitudes cycle is a set of the deepest poetry lately, there are critics who placed even above Campos de Castilla.
Campos de Castilla: Spain reflects problems and issues. Castilla is a land in which Machado can still search the soul. Campos de Castilla published in 1912, shortly before the death of Eleanor. A range of themes in his compositions: Machado said that patriotism, nature and hours of his life .-- The enigmas of man and the world will continue to inspire, intimate poems in the line of his previous poetry. But what he brings back this book are the pictures of landscapes and people of Castile or the meditations on Spanish reality .-- The landscape seems collected, with an absolute <objetividad>. Thus, in Campos de Soria series or banks of the Douro, can see a clear subjective component: Machado projects his own feelings on that land, operating a preferred choice as dour and accentuating suggesting loneliness, transience and death. - The <patriotic concern> inspires poems about the past, present or future of Spain. They show a critical attitude that led to the already discussed al98 Machado seconded. Only in some cases could be points in common with online regeneration. in later poems added to the book, the criticism of Machado already part of different bases: one version is purely historical and progressive politics, encouraged by the new faith in <other Españ>, <implacable and redentora>, with whom she now feels committed .-- Let us stress, in addition, the long Alvargonzález The land of romance, in which the poet manages to revitalize the old verse, in an attempt Romancero> <type a new expression that was popular humano> elementary <lo. This is a thrilling narrative poem, whose grim story revolves around greed, the result of the hardship and misery of those lands .-- Moreover, in Machado's Campos de Castilla began an aspect of its creation, type of very short poems comprising the series of Proverbs and Songs. They are flashes lyrical, philosophical. The book ends with praise.
