Miguel Hernandez, a Spanish poet, wrote prior to, and during, the Spanish Civil War. His works resonate with themes of love, death, and social injustice. Elegía (Elegy), one of his most renowned pieces, mourns the loss of a friend with poignant imagery and sorrow. Final Sonnet is reflective of his intense emotional experiences, distilling love and grief in compact form. The Sun, the Rose, and the Child captures innocence and natural beauty with vivid metaphors. Hernandez’s style blends traditional forms with modernist innovation, reflecting his self-taught background and commitment to accessible art. Despite his early death at thirty-one, his work has had a lasting impact on Spanish literature.
