Juan Ramón Jiménez - Biographical
Juan Ramón Jiménez (1881-1958) belonged to the crowd of writers who, within the wake of Spain's lack of her colonies to the USA (1898), staged a literary revival. The chief of this workforce of modernistas, as they referred to as themselves, Rubén Darío, helped Juan Ramón to post Almas de violeta (Souls of Violet), 1900, his first quantity of poetry. The years among 1905 to 1912 Ramón Jiménez spent at his birthplace, Moguer, the place he wrote Elejías puras (Pure Elegies), 1908, los angeles soledad sonora (Sonorous Solitude), 1911, and Poemas mágicos y dolientes (Magic Poems of Sorrow), 1911. His early poetry was once inspired via German Romanticism and French Symbolism. it truly is strongly visible and ruled by means of the colors yellow and eco-friendly. His later kind, decisive, officially ascetic, and ruled by means of white, emerges within the poetic prose of his tender Platero y yo (Platero and I), 1914, and is absolutely constructed in Diario de un poeta recién casado (Diary of a Newly-Wed Poet), 1917, written in the course of a visit to the U.S., in addition to in Eternidades (Eternities), 1918, Piedra y cielo (Stone and Sky), 1919, Poesía (Poetry), 1923, and Belleza (Beauty), 1923. within the twenties, Ramón Jiménez turned the said grasp of the hot new release of poets.

Six years later, because the results of the Spanish Civil battle, he left Spain for Puerto Rico and Cuba.

«I settle for with gratitude the undeserved honour which this illustrious Swedish Academy has noticeable healthy to bestow upon me. Besieged by way of sorrow and ailment, i need to stay in Puerto Rico, not able to take part at once within the solemnities. And so you could have the residing testimony of my very own intimate emotions accumulated in daily organization of friendship firmly validated during this land of Puerto Rico, i've got requested Rector Jaime Benitez of its college, the place i'm a member of the school, to be my own consultant ahead of you in all ceremonies hooked up with the Nobel Prize awards of 1956.»

I have stumbled on such affection for Juan Ramón Jiménez and such knowing for his works that I belief you'll excuse me if I unmarried out for specific thank you one amongst you so clever and penetrating that i'm definite all others could be blissful to be famous in him. I check with your personal nice poet Hjalmar Gullberg, whose presentation this afternoon we will never forget and whose rendition of Juan Ramón Jiménez' poetry has delivered to the Scandinavian humans the transparent purity of our Andalusian master.

Juan Ramón Jiménez has requested me additionally to claim this: «My spouse Zenobia is the genuine winner of this Prize. Her companionship, her aid, her suggestion made, for 40 years, my paintings attainable. this day, with out her, i'm desolate and helpless.»

I have heard from the trembling lips of Juan Ramón Jiménez one of the most touching expressions of melancholy. For Juan Ramón is any such poet that his each note displays his personal inner nation. We fervently wish that sometime his sorrow can be expressed in writing and that the reminiscence of Zenobia will offer renewed and eternal suggestion to that groovy grasp of Hispanic letters, Juan Ramón Jiménez, whom you have got honoured so signally today.

Prior to the speech, R. Granit, Member of the Royal Academy of Sciences, made the subsequent feedback concerning the Spanish poet: «Juan Ramón has been known as a poet for poets, however the layman can method him if keen first to partake passively of the sheer visible great thing about his panorama, attractive Andalusia, its birds, its plants, pomegranates, and oranges. as soon as inside of his global, via leisurely analyzing and rereading, one steadily awakens to a brand new «living insight» into it, refreshed through the intensity and richness of an extraordinary poetical mind's eye. whereas doing so I recalled a talk among the painter Degas and the poet Mallarmé, as comparable through Paul Valéry. Degas, being affected by a sonnet, complained of the problems, and at last exclaimed: ‹And but i don't lack ideas...› Mallarmé with nice mildness answered: ‹But Degas, one doesn't create poetry with principles. One does it with words.› If ever there was encouraged use of phrases, it really is in Juan Ramón Jiménez' poetry, and during this experience he's a poet for poets. this can be most likely additionally reasons why, in the complete Spanish-speaking global, he's considered as the trainer and master.

The literary awards might contain judgements more challenging than the clinical ones. but we must always be thankful to the founder for having incorporated a literary Prize in his will. It provides dignity to the opposite awards and to the act itself; it emphasizes the human and cultural aspect which the 2 worlds of artistic mind's eye have in universal; and maybe, in spite of everything, it expresses deeper insights than scientists can ever achieve.»
