Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer's rhymes are the origin of a race that, through Rubén Darío, Juan Ramón Jiménez, the Machado brothers and the Generation of 27 leads to Gil de Biedma, the Novísimos, the generation of the 80s and poetry of the 21st century. MO (Mónica) Gutiérrez Serna illustrates the great work of the father of contemporary Spanish poetry, making the classical poet dialogue with current plastic tendencies. The result is a game of strength and delicacy, something like sculpting the air. The poet and philologist Luis Alberto de Cuenca have dealt with the edition, following the text of the 1871 princeps, printed a few months after Gustavo's death at the expense of his friends. De Cuenca has updated the spelling and punctuation to get even closer (if possible, because he can't be more alive and closer) the verse from Becquer to today's reader.
