Description - Written in Water by Stephen Kessler
While Cernuda's verse is vivid testimony to various aspects of his biographical itinerary, it is in his prose poems that he traces more explicitly an outline of his life's journey. Reviewing this work, Octavio Paz wrote: In these memories and landscapes, in these notes toward the history of his sensibility, there is great objectivity: the poet doesn't set out to fantasize, or to lie to himself or anyone else. He attempts only to illuminate.
