Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer

$ 1.99

The late Romantic poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer is considered one of the first modern Spanish poets. His ‘Rimas’ (Rhymes) are celebrated for their sensitive, restrained and deeply subjective quality. Bécquer’s poetry tackles themes of love, disillusionment and loneliness, while exploring the mysteries of life and poetry. In contrast to the rhetorical and dramatic style of the Romantic period, Bécquer’s lyricism, in which assonance predominates, is simple and airy. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Bécquer’s collected works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
